I’m a huge Selena fan, so when I first heard of the dish that I’m about to share with you, I instantly thought of this song and gave it a new name. I’m just weird like that! This song had one of the most iconic looks (fun fact: I’m considering this outfit for Halloween this year), and has such a fun, catchy beat!
Now that Selena’s song is stuck in your head (your welcome), here’s the recipe I had to share with you…..Bibimbap! It’s a dish my brother got my hooked on, and this particular recipe was in one of my Hello Fresh boxes awhile back. It fits in great with my current meal plan, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
Ingredients for 4 servings:
-8 oz Button Mushrooms
-2 large carrots
-Ginger (about a 2tsps…I love ginger so I use a bit more)
-4 cloves of garlic
-1 1/2 cups jasmine rice (you can sub cauliflower rice or brown rice if you prefer)
-2 Tbl sesame oil
-4 tsp sriracha
-6 TBL soy sauce (I use half that amount)
-20 oz ground beef
Wash and dry all produce. Bring 1 3/4 cups water to a boil. Halve zucchini lengthwise and slice into thin half-moons (I use a vegetable peelers to make zucchini ribbons). Thinly slice mushrooms and scallions, keeping scallion greens and white separate. Peel carrot, then use vegetable peeler to shave into ribbons. Peel and mince ginger and garlic.
Once water is boiling, add rice. Cover and reduce to a gentle simmer, cooking for about 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, pickle scallions by tossing the scallion whites with vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside and let marinate. In another bowl, stir together sesame oil, 1 1/2 TBL sugar (I skip the sugar), half the sriracha, and 1 1/2 TBL soy sauce.
Heat drizzle of olive oil in a large pan. Add carrots, cooking until tender but still crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Add a little more oil and add zucchini. Once those have been cooked, add the mushrooms and cook until tender. Remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add a little olive oil as well as ginger and garlic, tossing until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add beef, cooking until no longer pink. Pour in remaining soy sauce.
Divide rice between bowls, then arrange beef, zucchini, mushrooms, scallion white mixture, and carrots on top. Garnish with the green scallions and drizzle with the remaining sriracha.
The awesome thing about Bibimbap is that there are several variations. Some have an egg, some have other veggies….it just depends! I love this recipe but encourage you to use the veggies you like so you really enjoy it!
