I am a big fan of Middle eastern/Mediterranean foods and flavors. My first job in a what most would consider professional kitchen was in an upscale Mediterranean restaurant. I still have occasional work nightmares from my time working there because I was very green, but eventually moved up to one of the lead chefs. In the time I spent there, it introduced me to some dishes and recipes that I was familiar with so I learned a lot. Recipes using grape leaves like dolmas, tzatziki, escalivada, Spanish tapas and sauces like romesco and charmoula were new to me but became some of my favorites.

This is a very easy and delicious dish to make. If you love Korean food as much as I do, this will be a recipe you make over and over again.
This is more of a review than a recipe because I used store pre-made ingredients and what’s wrong with making an easy meal? I used store bought teriyaki udon by Pulmuone which came with 2 portions of udon noodles, vegetables and sauce packets.
Bibimbap is rice topped with a variety of vegetables, beef and served with gochujang (Korean red chili pepper paste). You can choose which vegetables you like, or use store bought mixes for an even easier preparation.
