Bi Bim SLOP
So look, the reality of it is, I knew I wasn't going to be making myself an authentic Bibimbap today. But I had a bunch of shit in my fridge that I had to cook. I am trying to not be as wasteful in the New Year, so here's what I came up with.
And look, don't email me freaking out that this isn't an authentic recipe! I know all too well you crazy people who get your panties in major wads when people don't make authentic recipes but CALL them by the same name. That's why I didn't call it a Bibimbap. Pay attention.
Here's What I Did:
Grabbed everything in my fridge or on my countertop that I wanted to put into this recipe. This included some leftover cilantro-lime rice, baby corn, carrots, spinach, green onion, rosemary ham, garlic, shallot and brown beech mushrooms.
Then I heated up some coconut oil, cooked the shallot, mushrooms and garlic until browned. Threw in a scoop of rice, a few drizzles of sesame oil and a tablespoon of soy sauce. I cooked this until the rice had a slight crunch to it. I then added in the ham and the spinach and stirred until just warmed through. Then I plated it, added sliced carrots, baby corn and green onions and cilantro. Topped it with a fried egg and there you have it. Not a Bimbimbap, but a Bi Bim Slop that will make you slap your momma!
