This turned out great, very tasty! I added 1 teaspoon of rice wine vinegar for a little tang since this tastes like what our local Korean BBQ uses. We served them at room temperature. Thanks so much for posting.

This is a great basic recipe for bean sprouts! Instead of fresh sprouts I used the canned sprouts (drained them first) that you can find at your local grocery store in the oriental section. I also added a teaspoon of rice vinegar to give it a little tang and serve it chilled. Tastes just like the restaurant sprouts. I love to serve this with cucumber salad, steamed rice, and bulgogi!

I live in Korea and was searching for this particular dish; they serve it in a lot of the recipes as one of the side dishes here, and it's so healthy. PLUS it's very inexpensive, and veggies in Korea still shock me by how pricey they are. Anyhow, it was perfect. Exactly the recipe I was looking for, only it's a cut above the restaurants here with the addition of the pretty green onions and sesame. Thanks for the recipe. Perfect.

Very sesame-y, and very much like what we remember from the Korean restaurant we used to frequent when we lived near one. Did add the rice vinegar, as one of the recommenders suggested. Thanks for posting!

I loved this. I made a couple changes- didn't boil as long, added soy sauce per other reviewer's recommendation, added ginger. Quick and delicious. Thanks!

This recipe was very bland. Would definitely recommend adding more garlic and salt to the mix and even adding some korean chili paste.

Easy and leaves the perfect amount of crunch! It calls for too much salt, next time I will just salt the water it's cooking in.

It is much better if you add 3 teaspoons of black vinegar--thanks for sharing!
