You Should Get Buzzed About This Tasty Bibimbap

Given bibimbap's ability to incorporate spicy, sweet, savory, crunchy, and chewy all in one dish (not to mention its talent for vacuuming up leftovers from your fridge), it's no surprise that this simple combination of rice, vegetables, and protein is an essential part of Korean cooking. Translating as "mixed rice," bibimbap is more a framework than a recipe, according to Esther Choi of New York City's mŏkbar, who recently showcased her version of the dish at our JBF Greens members-only event at Buzzfeed Tasty. Choi's take incorporates recipes from multiple generations, featuring sauces from her grandmother and a unique rice blend from her mother. Tune in to the Tasty video above to get the recipe.
