Korean Bibimbap Sauce

Korean Bibimbap sauce

What is Bibimbap!

Bibimbap is a Korean 'mixed rice' dish, with meat, varieties of steamed/ blanched vegetables, serve in a bowl of rice... drizzle with the hot. sweet and salty Korean sauce, top with one bulls eye fried egg.

The highlight of the entire dish will have to be the sauce (at least for my family).

The sauce is easy to make, from scratch, with ingredients that you are able to find in lurking either in your larder or refrigerator.

Before anyone shoot me!!! Putting forward my disclaimer...

THIS is OUR version of Bibimbap sauce
The recipe yield approximately 1 cup.
for Bibimbap, you will only need 1 to 3 tablespoons of the Bibimbap sauce!, depending how brave you are with the heat ;P.

Freeze the remaining sauce for later use or add a couple of tablespoons to stir-fry beef with some french beans or some crunchy vegetables :D
