Recipe: Korean Bibimbap Bowls With Bison Sirloin Steak
Lately, I’ve been loving anything with super thin slices of sirloin steak. They cook so quickly and are so tender, it makes meals really easy and delicious. These slices of bison sirloin practically melt in your mouth. The secret to cutting steak into very thin slices is to do it with a sharp knife while the meat is still partially frozen. These bowls have all of the amazing Korean flavors that you’re looking for. Better yet, bibimbap bowls easily stand alone as a complete meal with the perfect combination of rice, vegetables, steak, egg, delicious seasonings, garnishes and gochujang sauce. I love putting kimchi on mine, and if you like it I definitely recommend having some for these bowls. Toasted sesame oil offers an extra layer of flavor but if all you have is untoasted sesame oil, it’ll work just fine.

Free Range Bison Raised On Our Beautiful Ranch
Our bison live free range on 10,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.

- Cook the rice in a rice cooker, Instant Pot or on the stovetop. When it’s finished cooking, set aside/keep warm.
- While the rice is cooking, heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple minutes in the dry skillet to allow some of the moisture to evaporate. If you like, you can cook the vegetables in batches so that you can arrange them in separate piles on top of the bowls, or cook them all together for convenience. Add avocado oil to the pan. When the oil is hot, add in the vegetables and minced garlic. Season with sea salt and cook until the vegetables are a light golden brown, adding more oil as necessary. Set the cooked vegetables aside and cover to keep warm.
- Add a little more oil to the skillet if necessary. Cook the eggs as desired (sunny side up is the classic way for bibimbap). Set the cooked eggs aside.
- Add more oil to the pan if necessary and cook the thinly sliced sirloin steak. Take care not to overcook as it cooks very quickly. Set aside.
- Assemble the bowls. Portion the rice, then add steak slices, vegetables and an egg on top of each bowl. Garnish with gochujang sauce, sesame seeds, chopped green onions and kimchi as desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!
