Quick & Easy Bibimbap in a Bowl ( Korean Mix Rice )

This for sure is everyone's favourite dish! Bibimbap simply has everything you need in one bowl, eating 'em is easy too by mixing 'em all up and enjoy it! 

To all the Korean and Bibimbap lovers out there, forgive me for modifying this authentic dish a little on the style of cooking which i simplified the step without using Hot Stone Pot and and so no crispy part of the rice below. But anyway, the taste is just as good as the authentic one, its just better for me this way! :)  .... 


BEEF INGREDIENTS:
8 ounces lean freshly ground beef
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
1tbsp sugar
3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
1tsp fresh grated ginger
2tsp toasted sesame oil, divided
1tsp coarse black pepper

RICE
2 cup cooked rice for 1 standard size of soup bowl 

VEGETABLES INGREDIENTS 
Combination such as carrot, zucchini, cucumber, beansprout, capsicum, red or daikon radish, green onion or spinach 

Other optional garnishes: Toasted and julienned nori or Korean seaweed; Cabbage or other kimchi; Toasted sesame seeds
1 or 2 eggs

GOCHUJANG SAUCE 
2-3 tbsp Gochujang/ red chili paste 
2 garlic cloves, finely minced.
1 tbsp soy sauce.
1 tsp sesame oil.
2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted.
2 teaspoons sugar (or other sweetener)

METHOD
* Combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and pepper in a bowl.  Stir in beef, using fork to break up meat, and let marinate at least 15 minutes. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium high.  Cook beef for about 5 minutes or until just cooked through; set aside.
* Clean vegetables ( carrot julienned / beansprouts/ spinach / capsicums/ mushroom etc ) drizzled cooking oil/sesame oil on pan, toast vegetables for a few minutes, season with salt and pepper.  
* In a bowl, add in cooked rice, top rice with beef, place vegetables bean sprouts, spinach etc...nori or kimchi, if desired, around meat. 
*Fry eggs sunny side up and place on top.  (If serving in hot bowl, eggs can also go in raw and will cook in the hot bowl as you toss everything together.)  Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over.  
*Add gochujang sauce and stir to combine.  If there's any extra juice from cooking the meat, I like to stir it into the gochujang sauce.
