Beef Kimbap – the Korean version of Japanese “maki,” or rice rolls. The flavor comes from sesame oil and individually seasoned meats and veggies.
Kimbap is a Korean Seaweed Rice Roll that consists of seasoned rice and various vegetables and meat that’s rolled in dried seaweed (kim). It’s so delicious, and makes for a great snack or lunch!
The flavor comes from sesame oil and individually seasoned meats and veggies.
But the one particular ingredient that is the heart of Kimbap is “danmuji,” or bright yellow pickled radish that you can find at the Korean grocery store in the refrigerated section.
Also, everything in the roll is seasoned so well that you don’t need to dip it into any kind of sauce.
Once you have all the ingredients prepped, the assembling goes by pretty quickly, and it’s worth it because it’s like having a well balanced meal in every bite.
They are both similar in that they both include steamed rice and seaweed. However, sushi rice is seasoned with vinegar while kimbap rice is seasoned with sesame oil.
Leave the kimbap at room temperature for about 30 minutes before you cut it. Kimbap rice gets dry easily, so it’s best for you to eat it the day you make it.

TIP: For the summer time, instead of the marinated beef, you can use strips of cooked ham, and instead of spinach, you can either use thin strips of cucumber, or julienned perilla (sesame) leaves to lighten it up and keep it easy!
