Korean Bean Sprout Rice (Kongnamulbab)

Naomi Imatome Yun
Koreans like to eat rice cooked with different beans and mixed with a variety of vegetables, but kongnamul bab is a personal favorite of mine. We only had it at special meals growing up, so I still get really excited to eat it, whether it's being served to me or I've made it with some extra bean sprouts in the fridge. Adding beef or pork is something I've only started doing in recent years, and it's a good thing to do if you want to bulk up a meal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • 2 cups soybean sprouts, washed
  • 3 cups uncooked Korean or Japanese rice
  • 1/2 cup beef or pork, cut into small pieces and covered in bulgogi marinade (optional)
