Bibimbop

This is Bibimbop, a popular Korean dish that I love and order every chance I get. It is basically a cold dish made with a mixture of raw and/or lightly stir-fried julienned vegetables, a fried (or raw) egg and ground beef (optional). And it is usually served with rice and some spicy sauce.

This post is for Chuckeroon of Richmond upon Thames Daily Photo because he likes my food photos.

So can you identify the ingredients in the big bowl?

Looks healthy, but I'll take it without the egg.

Ann said...

That looks good, haven't had bibimbop for years. I remember it as being hot, but maybe not.

ken mac said...

and where you enjoy this meal?

Alexa said...

How about zucchini, bean sprouts, mushrooms, cucumber, carrots, seaweed (??), red cabbage (again, ??), some greens, and an egg?
Yum (mostly).

je ne connais pas, mais cela donne envie. belle photo, tu devrais faire un guide photo sur les plats servis à NYC.

Alexa covered everything I can see. Are those sesame seeds on top?

Chuck Pefley said...

It looks quite lovely. However, I'm more in tune with pasta :)

Chuckeroon said...

Looks fantastic!!! You've put a spring in my step this morning Ming.

Just off to finish my bacon and large pot of 100% Rain Forest Alliance coffee in the Blue Mug as shown many months ago (I alternate the Blue and the Yellow one). Then it's away to "repair the unrepairable" at Ham House.

Cheers and Greetings...'roony.

It even looks good in your photograph.

I will go down to the downstairs Korean restaurant and have a try in an hour or so! (Its 11 am here now.)

tigerfish said...

You can make this in a rice cooker, like I did! :D

Hilda said...

Ach, now I'm hungry! I love noodles of all kinds!

Hilda said...

Oops, I was thinking of some other dish. I always mistake mung bean sprouts for noodles. ;D

Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do said...

One of your occasional non-vegetarian moments, I guess ;)

Looks delishus!
My son lived in Korea for a very shorth while, he loved the food there.

Dee Dee said...

Ming...this looks amazing...I'll try to name ingredients...
Mushrooms
Zuchini
Bean Sprouts
Carrots
Egg
Sesame Seeds
Cucumber
you've mentioned Korean food before...I must surely try it and soon :)

Virginia said...

Surely that's not bacon I see! Must be sliced mushrooms I am guessing. I have never had Korean food but this looks delicious. Great photo!

alice said...

Miam! (=yummy!)

Ming the Merciless said...

Alexa and DeeDee described it all.

I think there's also some weird looking straw seaweed in there. If you didn't know what it was, you would have thought it was a worm or something. But it tastes like mushroom. Go figure!!

ken mac said...

Dude, your "cat poo" comments are killing me. ha ha ha. So where is today's pic? Get down on it!

marley said...

Tasty! I like them too :)

I love your idea on Eliane's blog. I have told her to agree. I'd pay to see her in that photo! (not in a disturbing way!)

Ex-Shammickite said...

So.... what's wrong with food colourings and flatulence? It's what British cuisine is all about.....!

I've never tried this, although I've seen that on the menu a couple of times. I remember just because of the name which sounds so jazzy to me.

Oh and, thanks Marley for not thinking of me in a disturbing way, lol.

GMG said...

No idea; but I wouldn't mind trying it... ;)

ken mac said...

We never did find out where Ming ate this fabo meal. Inquiring minds...

Kitty said...

It's hard for me to choose what to eat when out in Ktown - the dolsot bibimbop, the casseroles, the dumpling soup.
aaaargh, I'm starved!!!

Todd HellsKitchen said...

I should try that... I don't even know where there is a Korean restaurant around here...
