We loved this! What a nice change from my normal way of fixing spinach. Low sodium soy sauce works fine and even frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) works great too!

When she says one POUND of spinach, she isn't kidding. If you're going the baby spinach route, like I did, purchase a bit more than what you think is a pound. It cooks down,and you'll want A LOT of this. Tasted exactly like the banchan you get at any korean bbq in k-town, los angeles. PERFECT!

Excellent! I washed the spinach and stir-fried it, without oil, in my wok with just the residual water on the leaves to steam/stir-fry them. I drained the water by tipping the wok over the sink and using the back of a wooden spoon to press the leaves. Also, I left out the garlic and onions and decreased the sesame oil to 1 tsp. (a little of that goes a long way for our tastes). This was SO good....my husband says it reminds him of one of his favorite Japanese dishes, Goma Ae (a good thing). Thanks for posting this recipe jelisa, it's a new favorite for us.

Jelisa, girl, this was GOOD! As I ate, I kept thinking of different ways to eat the sauce. It would be really good with eggrolls instead of Duck Sauce or plain soy sauce. Or those Pan Fried dumplings. Or as a marinade for chicken. The possiblities are endless! I even thought about adding a little bit of minced ginger, YUM! Thanks for posting this. My tummy is full and my mind is working overtime!

Delicious. For some odd reason I wasn't in the mood for garlic, so I left it out. I'll be making this again: its quick and easy, and just a great summer dish. I like that it's not served hot. There was a LOT of sauce. After the spinach sat in it for a little while, I fished it out before I served it.

Combining some of my favorite ingredients ( sesame oil, seeds and fresh spinach), I thhink this is delicious and easy. I didn't weigh the spinach from our garden, just used a three quart saucepan, stuffed with spinach leaves and it worked great. After rinsing, I drained the leaves in a colander, smashing them down tightly with a masher and they drained well.

This is really good. I loved the Asian flare with this spinach. Thank you for sharing.

This is great! Mine was a tad too sweet, but since I didn't measure, it was probably my fault. This is very similar to the traditional Korean dish. We had this with Dwenjang chigae and kimchi, and it was fabulous! Thanks!
