Korean Style Bean Sprouts (Kongamul Muchim)

Updated: May 28, 2021

This dish is one of the wonderfully healthy and tasty Korean dishes known as being a part of Korean "banchan" which means "side dish" in Korean. This dish goes perfectly with homemade bibimbap (Korean mixed rice bowl) and/or beef, chicken, or pork bulgogi. This recipe is one of my favorite ways to cook bean sprouts and sometimes I just like to eat it with rice and my homemade kimchi.


-4 cups water+1 tsp. salt for cooking bean sprouts

-1 or 2 7oz. bags of mung bean sprouts

-1/4 cup green onions

-1 tsp. minced garlic

-1 tbs. Kadoya sesame oil

-1/4 tsp. salt

-sesame seeds to taste


  1. Wash and rinse bean sprouts of any dirt in a colander. Bring water and salt to a boil. Add bean sprouts and cook for 3 minutes. Drain.

  2. In a bowl, combine bean sprouts and all seasonings. Serve with your favorite Korean meat dish or snack. Enjoy!
