Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap

Recipe by  

"Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap is Korean for Hot Stone Bowl with Mixed Rice - oh, and vegetables, and meat, and egg. My 'go to' favorite Korean dish, next to haemul pajeon and Bulgogi. I'm a big carnivore so my version has about 25% more meat than the traditional version. Mmmmmm, cow! "

Directions

  1. Make the marinade for the beef. Combine the soy sauce, sugars, garlic, green onions, sesame seeds in a large bowl; add the sliced beef strips to the marinade, and season with salt and pepper. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C), and place 6 Korean stone bowls in oven. Combine shiitake mushrooms and 1/2 cup hot water in a small bowl, and soak for about 10 minutes, until pliable. Trim off and discard the stems. Thinly slice the caps. Set aside.
  4. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add spinach to the water just long enough to wilt the leaves, and then drain and pat dry. Set aside. Combine cucumber and carrots in a bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Preheat wok over medium-high heat. Cook carrots and cucumbers in a small amount of sesame oil to soften, stirring frequently. Remove from pan, and set aside. Add a small amount of sesame oil to the pan, and cook spinach in sesame oil for a minute or two. Remove spinach from pan,and set aside. Add the meat strips and marinade to the wok; cook, stirring frequently, until the liquid reduces in volume, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer the stone bowls from the oven to suitable heat resistant surface. Brush each bowl with sesame oil to coat. Divide the rice into the bowls, and gently pack to the bottom (the rice should sizzle as you arrange). Arrange the cucumbers and carrots, bean sprouts, greens, shiitake mushrooms, and beef mixture over each potion of rice. Immediately before serving , add one raw egg yolk to each bowl, drizzle with about a tablespoon of sesame oil, and top with the nori. Serve Kochujang sauce as a condiment.

I usually don't find bibimbap recipes that use brown sugar. This is an interesting addition. I think next time I may try this, just to see what the taste differenc e is. Otherwise, this seems like the usual bibimbap recipe that is always great!

Marinade for the beef is good! Although next time, I would use ground beef so its more mix-able. However, with preparing the vegetables, I added some things for more flavor: Mushrooms, I sauteed them with 1 tsp vegetable oil, 2tsp soysauce and 2tsp sugar and some sesame oil. Bean sprouts, I cooked them in a pot with a cup of water with 1tsp of salt for 20 minutes, then mixed it with 1 clove minced garlic, sesame oil and a pinch of salt. Spinach:I boiled it for a minute, as per the recipe, then added a pinch of salt, 1 tsp soysauce, 1 clove mince garlic and sesame oil. Zucchini and carrots : sprinkled with salt and sauted for a few minutes separately. Thanks for a great recipe!

All I can say is thank you! My husband loves this dish and I've been hard pressed to find a recipe that he likes. Thank you for sharing!!!

Made this last night for the first time. My husband lived in Korea for a year and this was one of his favorite dishes to order. I scaled it down to four and made as directed (even the raw egg which my husband insisted on). It was great but way too sweet. Once we added a spoon full of kuchujang to each of our bowls, it was perfect. My husband has requested me to make it again. Next time I'll reduce the marinade a little so it's not overly sweet and my kids can eat it without the kochujang. Also, skip the drizzle of sesame oil on the finished product (doesn't need it).

This was great - we tried it on a whim, and man were we happy with this gem. We used pyrex bowls, replaced green onion with regular, and used a few other fresh vegetables we had on hand ( snow peas, baby carrots and arugula). We didn't have chili paste so we looked up a substitute, and it really became the star of the dish alongside the meat. Will be making again, and again... and again.

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I did modify it a little, decreasing the sugar by half (using 1/4 C sugar and 1/4 C honey). Still, it was plenty sweet. I also omitted several ingredients I did not have, such as cucumber, carrot, and sesame seeds. Also, on one serving, I attempted the raw egg feat, but it didn't cook into the meal like I had expected, so the whole bowl of food became slippery from the egg. On other servings, I simply fried the egg on one side, then inverted it onto the food. Much better, in my opinion! I only had 1 lb. meat, so I used that. I substituted habanero hot sauce for the chili sauce, as well. Additionally, the only oil I used was a small bit to oil the dishes, and a small bit for frying eggs, spinach, sprouts, etc. I did not pour any over the finished dish. Note: To get the rice to sizzle, I had to put the rice in immediately after oiling the bowl (I used Pyrex bowls.) When I oiled more than one bowl at a time before adding rice, the rice didn't sizzle. So don't let those oiled bowls sit if you want the sizzle. :) The way I made it, I probably give it a four and a half. If I'd had the other ingredients on hand, I think that would have pushed this recipe into 5-star territory. Hence the rating.
