Cooking Notes


Straight gochuchang is very thick and not usually served without thinning with other ingredients. Gochuchang is mixed with soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, sugar and minced garlic to make the sauce that is mixed into bibimbap. Just google bibimbap gochuchang sauce. Or more simply, just mix with water and sesame oil.


For the gochuchang, you want to make a sauce (don't use the straight paste!):2 to 3 tablespoons gochujang paste1½ tablespoons rice vinegar1 tablespoon sesame oil1 tablespoon maple syrupYou can also add a splash of soy sauce.


I like to press cold, cooked rice into a large, very hot cast iron skillet that’s been coated with sesame oil; I turn the heat down and allow it to crisp, evenly divide and place in heated bowls, then fry the eggs in the same skillet.

@Euphemia: To add to my previous note: Traditionally, the crisp rice layer is produced by placing the rice in a fairly heavy and very hot (e.g., oven-heated) stone/ceramic serving bowl, pressing the rice down to ensure good thermal contact. The bowl, whose material has high specific heat, yields its heat to the rice layer sustainedly. This technique requires some care by both the cook and the diner not to burn themselves: the low-slow method, used in Iranian chelo rice, avoids this risk.


This is a really interesting recipe! In response to another comment pointing out how the browned, crusty rice in bibimbap is made, transitional Korean cooking doesn’t use oven. It’s all done on a stove top, in a thick stone pot for that delicious browned rice on the bottom - called nooroongji. I grew up in Korea and I didn’t start using my oven regularly years into moving to US. But this recipe seems brilliant. I’m all for seeing recipes that mix different cuisines and techniques.

@Euphemia - You're right that a quick steam (or microwaving) would separate the clumps of leftover rice into separate grains.But Step 3's heating the resultant rice in a sheet pan for 3-6 minutes to set the egg whites would not produce crisp rice crust, if that's your intention. Crust formation, a combination of caramelization (mostly) plus Maillard reaction, requires slow (20 min+) and low (3/10 on an electric stovetop) heat using a non-stick or oiled/buttered pan.

Eggs cooked on a sheet pan are actually really good. I add the egg(s) for the last 5 min or so of roasting. The pan is already hot so it doesn’t run and the quality of the sheet pan cooked egg is superb because of the heat on both sides. The best, honestly. Just test the cooking time obviously, learn your oven for this. Mine would probably eviscerate kale at 450 for that long , on topic of oven varieties LOL


Although not traditional, this sounds interesting. Having said that, I'd point out that bibimbap is mixed with gochujang sauce, not straight up gochujang. Gochujang sauce has mixture of sugar, garlic, vinegar and for me, mirin. If you don't want to make it, you can purchase ready made bibimbap sauce pretty easily at Korean supermarkets. Just keep it in the fridge like ketchup and whenever you like, add it to a bowl of rice. Even with just a fried egg and sesame oil, it's pretty good.


This is now my new favorite clean out the fridge meal! A sweet potato, a handful of kale, a quarter cabbage, some aging carrots, and a zucchini. Fried some tofu cubes, too. Made Maangchi's "vinegared soy-hot pepper paste seasoning sauce". Crisping the rice was a huge favorite - made a big pot of brown rice in the pressure cooker then spread it out immediately on a hot sheet pan where it crisped wonderfully. Served with kimchi and cucumbers and some shredded raw cabbage with lime & gochugaru.


Re: straight gochujang vs. gochujang sauce. This is a matter of preference and there's not one more "authentic" way than the other. Half of my Korean family prefers the sauce and the other half will always opt for straight gochujang. Of course, if you want to go with simple gochujang, it helps to have smooth home-made gochujang instead of the BRICK that I've had in my fridge forever.

Eggs are protein


Next time I would double the veggies and use both sheet pans for cooking them if I want four servings. Then I can avoid cooking the rice and eggs in a sheet pan and just crisp the rice in a heated cast iron and quickly fry the eggs in a nonstick pan instead. Also making the gochujang sauce someone else recommended was definitely worth it over thick paste form.

We loved this but we certainly did not have crispy rice. For my oven, next time I will cook the rice longer and put the eggs in for just two or three minutes. The eggs cooked much faster than the rice warmed/crisped.

RE: protein -- uses ground beef (25-30g/person, you can increase it). The basic Korean flavor combination of soy sauce, sesame (both oil and seeds), sugar and garlic in the recipe works for any meat or even firm tofu; just cut the meat thinly so that it cooks quickly.


I would think that we should probably trust the Korean on the straight up gochujang add. Most traditional Korean restaurants serve it straight up on the side. The recipe is delicious as is. Thank you Eric. <3


I've made this exactly according to recipe AND have also cooked the egg and crisped the rice separately (not in the over as directed) and I prefer stop top prep for the rice and eggs. This is a got to recipe for me that I come back to often.


This was great- as with others I changed around the veg to suit my tastes. We did thinly sliced sweet potatoes, carrots cut on the bias, broccoli florets, and onion wedges, and mushrooms. I also marinated thinly sliced chicken thighs. I put the rice in earlier with chicken on the other half. Did eggs last. I’ll probably do eggs in a pan next time. Everything was done within 20 minutes and I made up a sauce with chili garlic sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, and vinegar. Was delicious!


I made this last night and I should've watched the video first. But it came out very tasty just the same. I added raw cucumber rounds and they were a great addition. I am curious what vegetables were in the Spring Bibimbap in the video?


Question: Does anyone use parchment paper on sheet pan? Thanks.

This is one of my favorite recipes. Added to my rotation. I altered this easily to my low carb high fat macros/way of eating. Cauliflower rice, siracha mayo. Oh my, divine.


We didn't have rice, so subbed quinoa. Still tasted great and gave some extra protein! Excited for leftovers and to make again

I am guessing that when you remove the second pan from the oven, cracking eggs onto that pan will cook the eggs without returning to the oven. That means the rice will not have a chance to heat. We shall see!


I used straight up Gochujang and it was great. I used day old rice, sweet potato, broccoli, onion, and shiitakes. Loved this simple fast meal.


I would not do gochujang sauce with vinegar for bibimbap. Sesame oil, sesame seeds and (optional) drizzle of soy sauce (optional) a pinch of sugar are more conventional. Vinegar is most commonly used with gochujang when making sauce for spicy noodles such as bibimgooksu (spicy wheat noodles) or bibimnaengmyun (spicy buckwheat noodles).

Cook time was a bit long for my taste. May try 425 next time. Instead of egg, I marinated some tofu in an improvised Korean barbecue sauce and cooked it with the veggies. Still experimenting with the best way to get crispy rice.


We enjoy all the different flavors of this recipe and I've made it twice. The second time I stopped trying to fit everything on the sheet, which is almost impossible to do. More dishes to wash, but less stress trying make it all fit. I also used canola oil instead of olive- I found the flavors shine better. Finally, if you do use multiple cooking sheets, put the eggs/rice sheet on the top rack and move the top sheet to the bottom- that way the rice will get better heat and crunch.


This recipe is perfect. 11/10


Made this tonight subbing frozen spinach for the kale (second sheet pan with spinach and chopped Beyond Meat sausage on top—convection worked well to blow off some water). Side of kimchi from our kimchi 3 ways session with family a la Eric Kim. Easy meal to put together with what you have at home, and adjustable enough for my kids to pick and choose what to put in their bowls. Winner


My family and I loved this. I would make two sweet potatoes, as one wasn't enough for four servings. The eggs were overcooked, and I'll make them on the stove top the next time I make this. I also followed the previous comments and made this classic gochujang bibimbap sauce (easy on the sugar) for the top.


This recipe is awesome, an easy way to get a large portion of fresh vegetables into one meal. And tasty without needing a lot of extra ingredients. So many people in NYT comments get hung up on traditional methods and need to relax. Think about all the other dishes you like to cook that have traditional and shortcut methods. And if your gochujang is too thick just mix it with a little hot water.
