How Do You Make Bibimbap Pizza?
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
- 4 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced on the bias
- 1/4 cup gochujang (Korean red chile paste)
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely grated
- 4 ounces of ground beef
- 2 large carrots, grated on the large holes of a box grater
- 1 cup kimchi, coarsely chopped
- 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and cut into strips
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 cups cooked long-grain rice
- 1 large egg
- Toasted sesame seeds, for serving
- Position an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees F.
- Cover the scallions with ice water and chill until ready to serve (the ice water will make them curl).
- Whisk together gochujang, soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic in a small bowl until smooth. Mix 3 tablespoons of the gochujang mixture with the ground beef in a small bowl until combined.
- Toss 1 tablespoon of the gochujang mixture with the carrots, kimchi, and shiitake in a medium bowl until completely coated.
- Pour the oil into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and swirl to coat. Add the rice and press down to flatten and cover the entire surface of the skillet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the gochujang mixture and spread it evenly over the rice, leaving about 1/2 inch of the edge exposed. Spread the carrot mixture evenly over the sauce and top with tablespoon-size portions of the beef mixture.
- Heat the skillet over high heat until the sides start to dry out and you see the oil sizzling around the sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to the oven and bake until the meat starts to brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven, crack the egg in the center and return to the oven to continue baking until the egg is set, 5 to 6 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- Remove the scallions from the water, pat dry, and sprinkle on top of the meat and egg. Top with the remaining gochujang sauce and some sesame seeds. Cut into slices to serve immediately.
- While this dish is traditionally made with beef, you can also use chicken, pork, tofu, and more vegetables for a vegetarian-friendly recipe.
- For leftovers, simply cut the pizza into pieces for easier storage in a microwave-safe container. These can be reheated in the microwave at medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes or placed in the oven for 10 minutes.
