    Bibimbap is a traditional Korean one-dish meal that marries rice, assorted vegetables, oftentimes kimchi, a raw or fried egg, seaweed strands, and, perhaps, a small amount of meat, chicken, or fish. It’s the ultimate grazing bowl and a terrific way to utilize leftovers. A good-size portion of rice is spooned into a large bowl and colorful mounds of cooked ingredients are arranged on top. The popular Korean chile bean sauce known as gochujang is thinned with a little water, sweetened with a bit of sugar, and flavored with Asian sesame oil, vinegar, and sometimes garlic and served as a sauce with the dish. Look for gochujang in Korean markets, in Asian markets selling Korean foods, or online. Chinese chile bean sauce is a fine substitute.
