  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the bean sprouts, and cook uncovered until tender yet still crisp, about 15 seconds. Drain in a colander, then immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Once the bean sprouts are cold, drain well, and set aside.
  2. Whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, chile powder, garlic, and sesame seeds together in a large bowl. Stir in bean sprouts and toss until well coated with the sauce. Sprinkle with green onions and season with rice wine vinegar. Refrigerate before serving.

I always use a large bag of soybean sprout simply because it has a nicer texture and the added crunch from the soybean gives it a better taste overall. I boiled my sprouts in hot water for 1 min...

Just like my Korean grandma used to make!

The soybean sprouts should have the actual soybean on the end (yellow). You can usually find them like this at an Asian/Korean Market. Our local grocery store doesn't carry the sprouts with th...

Very tasty! I actually thought there was a little too much sesame oil, but other than that, a great blend of flavors! We will definitely make this again!

I have never had this before, so I cannot rate it based on what it should taste like. However, I thought this was very good and easy and budget-friendly (since I had all ingredients on-hand exc...

I love this stuff... definitely a acquired taste if you haven't eaten it before but give it a chance!!

Great recipe. Used a little less seasame oil and still tasted fine. Truly the taste I remember when I was living in Korea!

I prefer to use the regular bean sprouts from the grocery store rather then the ones with the pod on the end. I find the pod too strong of a taste.
