Kongnamool Moochim - Seasoned Bean Sprouts - (콩나물 무침)

Start off by washing your bean sprouts in cold water.

In a pot (with a lid) add about 1cm of water and a little bit of minced garlic.

Throw in your bean sprouts (I believe this is about half a bag) some sesame oil and salt. I also add gook ganjang, but my mom says that I don't NEED to...I just do so that I can use less salt. Then close the lid and let it boil for about 15 minutes or so, it will cook from the steam that rises up from the bottom.

After 15 minutes, open the lid and adjust the flavor with some salt.

Throw in some green onions and close the lid for about another 3 minutes. At this point you're ready to serve, but I always add a little spice to my kongnamool...

I threw in some red pepper powder, mixed it up and transfer it to a container. So simple, huh?


  1. Kongnamool is one of my FAVORITE dishes! I make it constantly. Some of my very white friends even like it! Love it served over rice, day or night! Cucumbers are good this way, too. I just found your blog and am so excited to try some new, authentic Korean recipes! My grandmother is Korean, but had a stroke so I can't tap her brain for her recipes anymore, not to mention I'm scared to make something without visually seeing it first since I don't understand Korean! Thanks!

  2. Made this as well and it was good. Bought a big bag of bean sprouts and was trying to put sprouts in everything . . . until the bag was finished. I have been officially banned from buying bean sprouts but that was 2009, it's now 2010

  3. I found your blog on facebook! I am Korean and love Korean food. I don't get to eat it as often as I would like but seriously, I am so glad that I found your blog!

  4. My cousins are visiting (1st generation American - half Korean, half Japanese). I love when they're here because it's fun eating meals with other people that like to use chopsticks all the time. Anyway, I made this for them, and apparently they've (oddly) never had it before but LOVED it. Thank you! They're quite a bit younger than me, so I'll have to write a note for them to give my Imo so she knows what they're requesting when they get home. :o)
