I am very happy to introduce my kongnamulbap recipe to you today. If you’ve been using my recipes for a long time, you might be able to guess what it’s made from by it’s name. Did you? : )
Kongnamul means “soybean sprouts” in English and bap means “rice.” I’ve posted a few recipes that call for soybean sprouts like bibimbap, kongnamul muchim, and kongnamulguk. And how about recipes that use bap? Bibimbap, yubuchobap, what else? Oh, gimbap!
Yes! Bap is definitely a staple food for Koreans, so there are so many kinds of dishes made with rice, adding different ingredients. You could add Korean radish, seafood, even kimchi!
The best things about this dish are that it’s easy to make, simple, and delicious! I want to add 1 more thing: it’s very cheap! Nobody will say, “I can’t afford soybean sprouts!”
Do you want me to add 1 more thing? Yes, you can make a vegetarian version by skipping ground beef or even egg. It will still be very tasty. You can add crushed roasted dried seaweed (kim) if you want, but I prefer simple kongnamulbap because I don’t want to dilute the flavor. I always say this while I’m eating this: “umm umm .. ah delicious.”
Let’s make delicious, humble, decent, and wholesome kongnamulbap!
Ingredients (for 2-3 servings):
Soybean sprouts (16 oz: 453 grams), rice, ground beef, egg, soy sauce, green onions, garlic, green chili pepper (optional), radish sprouts, sesame seeds, sesame oil, onion, and honey (or sugar), and eggs.
*tip: If you’re a vegetarian, replace the beef with shiitake mushrooms. Soak 3-4 dried shiitake mushrooms in water until they become soft, then chop them up and season.
Preparation and cooking time: 50 minutes to 1 hour.
Let’s start by making rice!
Serve with the sauce and sesame oil on the side so that people can adjust the dish to their personal taste.
