Beyond Meat bibimbap recipe 失

Bibimbap is a great way to use up leftover banchan (Korean side dishes). Or a quick meal after making a bunch of banchan for the week. This version will use some seasoned spinach banchan (Sigeumchi-namul) in my last recipe and some that we will make for the dish. Gosari 窸禺收 is also really good in bibimbap.

No veggie dish is mandatory; it’s really up to you what to put. The combinations are endless. Have fun and experiment.

To keep our Bibimbap gout friendly and vegan, we will use Beyond Meat Burger patties instead of meat. When I bought these, we were going to make burgers. But after making the spinach, bibimbap sounded good. They do have a ground “beef” product, and that should also work.

The Beyond Beef was also used in my vegan stroganoff recipe and my Beyond meat tacos recipe.

Ingredients on a table

Some of the ingredients that you will need.

Soy Sauce: This is a Korean brand that I like.

Garlic: For convenience pre chopped garlic can be a big time saver. Fresh is better but yes this is real life.

Plum Syrup: It add sweetness along with a great depth of flavor.

Roasted Sesame Seeds.

Raw Sugar I like the flavor that it adds.

Red Pepper Paste or gochujang

Roasted Sesame Oil

Apple Sauce: Bulgogi marinade usually has some kind of ground up fruit. Usually apple or pear. For convenience applesauce works great.

For the Bibimbap Sauce, mix red pepper paste, soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil, raw sugar, plum syrup, and garlic. Then set aside for at least one hour. It’s really better the next day.

Cooked bean sprouts in a bowl

The soybean sprout banchan is not a fully tested recipe. But I will tell you what I did with close amounts for the ingredients.

First, boil the bean sprouts for three to five minutes until they start to soften and lose the raw taste. Remove from the boiling water and drain. Place them into a large bowl, and while they are still hot, season with red pepper flakes, green onion (finely chopped), garlic, sesame oil, and salt.

This was my first time using prepared lotus root. My wife did some searching on Korean cooking blogs to find out how to use it. When using fresh lotus root, it’s best to blanch it in boiling water with some vinegar. When using the prepared root, this step is not necessary.

But when using the prepared root, rinse it off and give it a one hour soak in cool water. Drain and add to boiling water for five minutes. Pour off most of the water leaving about two cups of water. To the water, add soy sauce and raw sugar. Stir it and cook until the liquid is almost gone, then add the plum syrup and turn off the heat. Please give it a good toss, set it aside, and let it cool.

Cooked julienned carrots in a pan

The carrot part of the recipe is easy except for the julienne cutting part. Julienne cut two carrots add to a pan with one teaspoon of oil (I use extra virgin olive oil). Cook until they start to get soft and have a little color. Season with a pinch of salt and remove from the heat.

Cooked beyond beed in a pan

To Make the Beyond Meat Bulgogi on medium-high heat, cook the Beyond Meat patties until they have some color on both sides. Chop them up and cook a little more. Then add the bulgogi sauce and turn the heat up to high. While occasionally stirring, cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Reduce the heat to medium and brown the “meat.” Remove from the heat and set aside.

Time to assemble to a bowl, add your cooked rice, and arrange your choice of vegetables. I did add some vegan kimchi. But not the one in my vegan kimchi recipe (it’s gone). This one I bought at Walmart it’s made in Korea and actually not too bad. Then add some of the Beyond Meat Bulgogi.

After that add as much sauce as you would like. Just keep in mind it’s kind of spicy.
