Personally I have yet to try eating the authentic Korean Bibimbap, I am looking forward to my trip to Korea (one day) to enjoy bibimbap, the Korean way!

Till then, I shall indulge and keep on making my version of Bibimbap Bowl.

My family just love bibimbap.
We could have bibimbap everyday till someone (aka my daughter) get sick of it :P.

How To Make Bibimbap sauce

The highlight of the entire Bibimbap bowl, 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.

And to make Bibimbap Bowl (as per second photo above), you will only require 1 to 3 tablespoons of the Bibimbap sauce!

That too will depend on  "How brave" you are with the heat ;P.

How to store Bibimbap Sauce?

Bibimbap sauce

Store in an airtight container (I used bottle).

Keep in the fridge and consume within 3-5 days.
