If I comparation to Indonesian food, Bibimbap is a mixed rice which contains vegetables, beef or chicken, eggs and spices. Based on the information I get, this food started with the customs of local farmers in Korea. These farmers work so hard and they forgot lunch and dinner.

Step by step

1#. Wash away all the ingredients that will be cooked.

2#. Cut carrots and cucumbers are square length of small sizes like matches.

3#. Cut mushrooms suit your taste. So is garlic and fish cake. I use fish cake instead of beef or chicken.

4#. Prepare salted soy and gochujang sauce. For some people who first tried this sauce, you'd feel really weird. Plus, this sauce is very different from the sauce that sold in Indonesia. Gochujang sauce is mandatory sauce in every Korean food. Almost every Korean food should wear this sauce and salted ketchup into the taste of this food.

5#. After all the ingredients were cut, you can cook all vegetables. But you don't cook all vegetable the same time. You have cook one by one vegetable.

6#. Prepare rice in plate or bowl. If you see this food, this food is served in a hot-holding cup. But, I use plates because I can mix rice, egg and vegetables.

7#. Put rice on the plate. Plus the other vegetables. Don't forget to fry eggs. After that, serve it on rice.


8#. You can add salt ketchup and gochujang sauce to your food.

9#. The way you eat it, you just mix all the materials into one. It tastes so good but this food turns out to have a pretty big portion, and I've reduced rice.

10#. Good luck and good luck.
