Ingredients (for 2-3 servings):
Soybean sprouts (16 oz: 453 grams), rice, ground beef, egg, soy sauce, green onions, garlic, green chili pepper (optional), 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!
Add 1 cup of short grain rice to a heavy bottomed pot. Rinse in cold water and drain.
Scrub the wet rice by hand about for about 10 seconds. Rinse and drain.
Scrub, rinse and drain 3-4 times, until the water becomes clear.
Tilt the pot and pour out as much water as you can. The rice should still be wet.
Add 1 cup of water to the rice, close the lid, and let it soak at least 30 minutes with the lid closed.
Next, soybean sprouts!
Take the soybean sprouts out of the package and put them in large bowl with water.
Rinse and drain a couple of times to clean thoroughly.
Pick out some brownish rotten beans. Drain and set aside.
Season ground beef (or chopped shiitake mushrooms)
Prepare about ½ cup ground beef (4 ounces: 113 grams) and put it in a bowl.
Add 1 ts soy sauce, a pinch of ground black pepper, 1 ts sesame oil. Mix well with a spoon and set aside.
Combine all these ingredients in a bowl and mix well: 1/3 cup soy sauce, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 stalk of chopped green onion, 2 ts hot pepper flakes, 1 ts honey, 1 tbs chopped onion, 1 tbs chopped green chili pepper, and 1 tbs roasted sesame seeds.
Cook 2 eggs sunny-side up and set aside. If you serve 3 people, prepare 3 sunny-side up eggs.
After the rice has soaked for 30 minutes, add the soybean sprouts and the seasoned ground beef over top.
Close the lid and bring to a boil over medium high heat for 10 minutes. After boiling, turn it over with a rice scoop and mix all the ingredients well.
Lower the heat and simmer for another 10 minutes with the lid closed.
Transfer it to a serving bowl and place the sunny side egg on top. Garnish with radish sprouts (muwoo soon).
Serve with the sauce and sesame oil on the side so that people can adjust the dish to their personal taste.
