Inspired by a popular Korean dish, this recipe uses low-carb sauce, a variety of vegetables, and miracle rice. Create your own version of bibimbap based on your dietary needs. You can leave out meat if you follow a vegetarian diet. Use Tamari sauce or gluten-free soy sauce instead of regular soy sauce to marinate beef, if you follow a gluten-free diet.
