Pibim Pap imitation

You know sometimes when you see a dish that you really fancy in magazines, etc..but it didn't come with a recipe, what do you do? Me, imitate!! I'll lock that dish in mind or if i'm not tooo lazy to get a pen and paper, i'll quickly write down with guesses on what goes into the mysterious dish and hopefully be able to cook it as soon as possible ;)

So, the following dish was inspired under similar situation..Tadaa! my version of Pibim Pap!


Pibim pap is Korean and it simply means mixed (=pibim) rice (=pap) . After researching online, the way to eat this meal is to mix the rice/vege whatnots thoroughly with spoon or in this case, chopsticks. See here for the original serving of pibim pap.

I didn't bother to look for the actual recipe, the ingredient was "what you see is what you get" basis minus some bits which are not available in the 'super' i.e. a bit of Hungarian pickled cabage, 1 egg -sunny side-up, spring onions, toasted sesame and dash of soya sauce and its ready!

The crunchy soury taste of pickled vege. and everything else matches so well, an appetising comfort food, and a keeper for those lazy days.

Hi Kris, I love these pages.
In my neighborhood Korean restaurant they spell it bibim bab, but I have seen it with any combination of these voiced and unvoiced consonants... I have bipim pab ;) once a month or so. Your imitation looks pretty authentic. What did you do for red sauce?
BTW Very nice pair of chopsticks!

Currently I am into Vietnamese pho. I have not made it myself, but I can imagine it is possible to find all ingredients in Hungary. I absolutely love Pho - have it for lunch 2-3 times a week. Here is a recipe that looks pretty good. I hear it is best if it cooks all day long... Give it a try.

Istvan,
tomato, tomato..potato, potato! not so effective when its in text *LOL*

the red sauce, no red sauce! it was a spur of the moment thing. havent been adverturous with Korean food and tend to stick with their bbq (cant go wrong with bbQ!)

the chopsticks were from local market back home. A packet of 4 pairs costs less than what we pay here for plain bamboo chopsticks :D

Who doesnt like a pho ! Basically I love any noodles - serves dry or with soup..their the best on wintery (or rainny) nights. As for the recipe, thank! but man, its complicated! I think i'll stick to eating them at restaurant for a while ;)
