Bibimbap is a Korean dish that consists of a bowl of rice with various vegetables and optionally meat. Bibimbap literally means stirred or mixed rice and although the dish is commonly presented with the ingredients on top of the rice they are normally all mixed together before eating them. Almost anything can go on bibimbap but vegetable toppings commonly include julienned carrot, cucumber, zucchini, mushrooms, spinach, bean sprouts, etc. An egg is also a common topping and it can be either fried or done as an omelette and julienned. Bibimbap is also commonly topped with meat and it is a great way to use leftover bulgogi, daeji bulgogi, ginger pork, etc. In general bibimbap is a great way to clean out the refrigerator. Of course bibimbap is also commonly topped with a chili sauce for a lot of heat.
