Low Carb Bibimbap

This fantastic low-carb, Korean-style steak bowl is served with your choice of shirataki rice, keto noodles, cauliflower rice, and spicy chili sauce. The beauty of bibimbap is that you can swap out any of the meat and veg ingredients with other low-carb options. Want a different protein? Use chicken, pork, or tofu instead. Add bean sprouts or cooked zucchini strips. Not a fan of bok choy? Substitute with napa cabbage or pan roasted brussels sprouts. Get creative and most of all, have fun with this dish.

What is bibimbap?

Bibimbap ingredients

  • 2 sirloin steaks, about 6-8 ounces each

  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Gochujang paste (or Sambal olek)
  • Garlic 
  • Ginger powder

How to make low-carb bibimbap

Start by marinating the steaks—place steaks into a zip-top bag. Combine marinade ingredients and pour over top. Coat meal well, seal bad, and place into refrigerator for 4-12 hours.

Grilling the steaks

Grilling Steaks
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or 375 degrees F. 
  • Remove steaks from the bag and place them onto the grill. Discard marinade. 
  • Cook steaks to your preference, though I recommend medium to medium-rare doneness ( an internal temperature of 135-140 degrees F). 
  • Once cooked, remove from the grill, place onto a large plate, and tent with aluminum foil to keep warm. Slice into thin pieces right before assembling the bibimbap.

Cooking the vegetables and eggs

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of oil to a large skillet and cook bok choy and mushrooms for 3-4 minutes over medium heat until wilted. Remove from heat and place into a bowl. Cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe the pan clean and add 1 1/2-2 teaspoons of oil. 
  • Cook 4 eggs sunny side up or to your desired doneness.

  • To arrange, scoop 1/4th of the Miracle rice into each bowl, followed by 1/4th of the sliced steak, bok choy, mushrooms, carrots, and cucumber slices onto each plate or bowl. 
  • Arrange bibimbap ingredients into separate spaces, as shown in the recipe photo. Top each bowl with 1 egg, toasted sesame seeds, and a helping of Korean chili paste or Sambal olek. Enjoy!
  • Optional step: Drizzle bibimbap with a little sesame oil before serving.

Leftover bibimbap

Store your bibimbap ingredients in separate containers. Place all cooked vegetables in one, all raw vegetables in another, and the meat in a separate container. Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
