Pork and veggie Bibimbap with carrots, zucchini and rice

This recipe takes its name from the Korean word for mixing rice. Which is exactly what you’re meant to do after serving it: put your rice in a bowl, add the toppings, and mix it all so that those flavors and textures combine in a glorious mishmash. There are plenty of flavors and textures going on here, too, like sweet carrot, juicy zucchini, and pork tossed with garlic, ginger, and soy.

Pork and veggie Bibimbap with carrots, zucchini and Jasmine rice

Ingredients

1.5 C. Jasmine rice

4 Scallions, thinly sliced

12 oz carrots

2 zucchini

2 thumb ginger, peel and mince

4 garlic cloves, minced

10 tsp white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp. Sesame oil

4 tsp. Sriracha sauce, divided

4 Tbsp. Soy sauce, divided

20 oz ground pork

2 Tbsp. Sugar

3 Tbsp. Olive oil, divided

Salt and pepper

Directions

1. In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, fifteen- eighteen minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.

2. Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Trim and peel carrots. Using a peeler, shave carrots lengthwise into ribbons, rotating as you go. Trim and halve zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Peel and mince ginger. Mince garlic.

3. In a small bowl, combine scallion whites, vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve. In a separate small bowl, combine sesame oil, half the soy sauce (you’ll use the rest later), up to half the sriracha, and 1 TBSP sugar (2 TBSP for 4 servings). Stir until sugar has dissolved.

4. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium high heat. Add carrot ribbons; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until slightly softened, three – four minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Pour another drizzle of oil to pan. Add zucchini; season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and tender, three-five minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside with carrots.

5. Heat another drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add pork, ginger, and garlic. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until pork is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Add remaining soy sauce and cook, stirring, until liquid has mostly evaporated, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Fluff rice with a fork and season with salt and pepper; divide between bowls. Arrange pork and veggies on top. Top with pickled scallion whites (and pickling liquid). Drizzle with sauce and remaining sriracha to taste. Sprinkle with scallion greens and serve.

Sorry that this photo looks awful. A better one is coming soon. I promise you that this one was delicious!
