My IfIts Bibimbap

So I’m about to blow your craniums. IfIts means “if it’s” meaning “if it is in the fridge”. This is a favourite mealtime pastime of mine and you can stumble upon some of your favourite recipes using these methods.

As I’ve moved 9300km across the globe from Devon, England to Daegu, Korea my kitchen utensils are lacking. I have no scales so everything is either weighed by eye or given as fractions of things, hope I’m forgiven oh merciless internet.

Ingredients                             Serves 1

  • 1/2 Carrot, cut into matchsticksVegChop
  • Halve a Courgette, cut into matchsticks

  • 2 or 3 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil

In a mixing bowl combine the beef 1 Tsp of red pepper paste, 1 Tbsp sesame seed oil, Tbsp soy sauce and the ginger, mix together.MarinadeBeef

On a medium heat add a tablespoon of sesame oil into a large frying pan and coat evenly. Keeping each item separate, carefully place the following into the pan: broccoli, enoki mushrooms, beansprouts, pak choi, courgette and carrot.

Drizzle over some soy sauce and turn the vegetables with a pair of tongs.

In a separate pan on a medium/high heat add the rice and a Tbsp of water, mix until rice is broken up. Add half a Tbsp of sesame seeds and mix, stirring well to ensure it is piping hot, cook for minimum of 2 minutes.

Place the rice at the bottom of the serving bowl and then tip in marinated beef and fry.

Using the tongs arrange the veg to look like pizza slices, leaving room for the beef.

Cook the egg quickly in the veg pan to your preference.

Place the beef into the remaining slot and serve the egg either on the side or on top, sprinkle dish with remaining sesame seeds and sweetcorn.
