Bibimbap is one of the most common dishes that you will see on he menu when you go to a Korean Restaurant and it is quite easy to make! I have made the hot chilli sauce slightly milder so if you want to have more kick, then you ca add more gochujang sauce!

Serves:         4 

Preparation time:   15 minutes 

Cooking time: 15-20 minutes


400g Beef mince 

6 Dried shiitake, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes 

240g Mung bean sprouts 

240g Carrot, julienne cut 

160g or 1 ½ Cucumber, sliced 

1 Red capsicum, sliced 

4 Garlic cloves, chopped 

Sesame oil
