My favorite Korean dish is Bibimbap. Bibimbap is simple, delicious, healthy, and easy to make at home.
You can customize your bibimbap with whatever you have in your fridge, and my homemade bibimbap sauce will take your dish to the next level!
Today I am sharing a Korean Short Ribs Bibimbap recipe, but if you are vegetarian, feel free to use the same sauce but combining with other vegetarian side dishes.
I like to describe Bibimbap as a Korean version of a burrito bowl for those that never tried it before.
The toppings are endless, and there are so many variations. Other than the Korean Short Ribs, below are some of my favorite toppings for bibimbap.
#1. Spicy Korean Cucumber Salad (10 Minutes ONLY!)
This spicy and savory cucumber salad will be the ultimate hit at every summer picnic and gathering. The best part is – Spicy Korean Cucumber Salad only takes 10 minutes to prepare.
