When we first moved to Asheville 10 years ago the Asian food scene was a little sketchy… I can say that without fear of hate-mail because most of the Asian restaurants around then are no longer in business. *wink*
(Nowadays, you can find great asian cuisine around town and at our food trucks!)
I missed the multicultural flavors readily available when living in a larger city. So I decided to learn how to make authentic, or close to authentic, dishes that I loved and craved.
Over the last few years, I’ve sprinkled these dishes amongst the treats and comfort food here on ASP, because not only are they dear to my heart, they are vibrant, flavorful, and often healthy.
- Vietnamese Bun Chu Gio
- Vietnamese Banh Mi
- Korean Bulgogi
- Korean Pajun Veggie Pancakes
- Thai Fried Rice
- Thai Chicken Satay
- Thai Nam Sod Salad
- Thai Pad Ke Mao
- Chinese Hot Pots
- Chinese Pot Stickers
- and even Ethiopian Injera
- and Ethiopian Mesir Wat, although not Asian.
You should try a few of these.
Today I’m sharing a healthy favorite, Korean Bibimbap.
This Korean specialty is an all-in-one meal that includes rice, raw veggies, sautéed veggies, a fried egg, and a sweet and spicy sauce over the top.
The vegetables can be adjusted to your liking, and this vegetarian dish can definitely be beefed up by adding Korean Bulgogi to each bowl.
Korean Bibimbap offers comfort and spice on cool autumn evenings.
The key to making a great Korean Bibimbap bowl is to focus on fresh ingredients, perfectly runny eggs, and the Gochujang sauce.
Gochujang sauce can be purchased at Asian markets, as well as stores like Whole Foods. However, today we’ve elevated the Ghchujang by adding sesame oil, honey, a touch of vinegar, and sesame seeds.
This bright sticky-sweet sauce adds a bold punch of flavor to every bite of your Korean Bibimbap.
Whether you serve Korean Bibimbap vegetarian style, or with beef, you are sure to love the robust flavors and healthy crunch it provides!
