About six months ago I took a trip with my mom to South Korea and Cambodia for a dental mission trip. While we were there, among other amazing experiences, we were able to completely immerse ourselves in their food culture. While we tried some things that could never come back home with us, like eating grilled tarantulas, a Korean classic came home with us.
We first tried traditional Bibimbap on our way to Seoul, on the plane. My mom and I fell in love and had it countless time throughout our trip. We came home gushing about it and decided to try it ourselves. It consists of rice topped with ground beef, shredded carrots, cooked spinach, bean sprouts, mushrooms, fried eggs, sesame oil, and Korean chili paste. While every recipe varied each one brought us back to Cambodia for just a second. Even without the experience to pair it with, I encourage anyone to try this traditional dish. See the link below for a recipe I’ve tried and really liked.
