Asian Box Recipe:

Bibimbap

Serves 4

  • 360g Brown, Red and Wild Rice
  • 500g BBQ Pulled Pork
  • 300g Organic Tofu
  • 100ml Citrus juice (lime, orange or lemon)
  • 100g Kimchi
  • 1 Carrot – Finely sliced
  • 4 Portions of ‘greens’ – cabbage, spinach or kale etc
  • 20ml Soy Sauce
  • 4 Eggs
  • Crispy onion to garnish
  • Pickles to garnish
  • Sriracha Sauce – to taste!

 

Cooking Guide

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°c
  2. Cook the rice in salted boiling water. This will take about 35 minutes
  3. Dice 300g of Tofu (approximately 2cm) and marinate in the citrus juice with 50ml of Sriracha sauce for about 30 minutes… The leftover tofu can be kept in water, in a sealed container for 5 days

The next steps should be done in an order where they are all coming together hot at roughly the same time. Don’t worry if this isn’t exact, we kept some of the ingredients warm while we finished the others…

  1. Place the pulled pork on an oven tray and cook for 10-12 minutes, until piping hot and beginning to caramelise
  2. Remove the Tofu from the marinade and in a hot, non-stick frying pan, fry for 3-4 minutes, or until hot and slightly caramelised on the outside
  3. Stir fry the greens, adding the soy sauce at the end of the cooking
  4. Blanch the carrots until slightly softened and heated through
  5. Fry the eggs
  6. If you would like to add some pickles (they work really well!) you can create delicious homemade pickles with radishes or red onion, marinated in some citrus juice or vinegar for half an hour, or longer…
  7. Assemble the dish! Put everything together in the bowl. Top with the egg, the crispy onions, the sriracha (to taste!) and pickles, if you’ve made them. Enjoy!!
