Korean Beef Bowl With Fried Egg

This Korean Beef Bowl With Fried Egg is loaded with veggies, beef, and rice, and features a savory and sweet sauce. We top it off with a fried egg to make it just that much better. I would describe it as a mashup between a Bimimbap Bowl and Beef Bowl with hoisin sauce thrown in.

This is not 100% percent authentic. It is more of a mash-up between Bimimbap Bowl and a Beef Bowl with hoisin sauce thrown in for a crazy amount of flavor. This is full of veggies, rice, and beef and features a sweet and savory sauce. The fried egg with a runny yolk is just the cherry on top! My favorite thing to do is mixing the creamy yolk with the sauce to make an unbelievable creamy, rich sauce that coats everything.


Bibimbap is a popular Korean dish. Bibimbap translates to “mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables.” So it can be used as a way to get rid of old vegetables and sides.

I would say this recipe is not 100% authentic because of the ingredients in the sauce. Traditional sauces have gochujang, a Korean hot sauce, as the main ingredient and are slightly sweet, zingy, and nutty. The sauce in this recipe features Hoisin Sauce, which is more traditional in Chinese sauce. Also, I went a little heavy on the soy sauce making for an overall sweet, nutty, and somewhat spicy sauce.
