3. In a small stockpot, carry a pot of salted water to a boil, then add the bean sprouts.

** Korean pink pepper powder, or Gochugaru (고추가루), is a bit much less spicy than your typical pink chili powder. When making a substitute, I’d recommend one thing like like 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1 1/2 tsp chili powder, and 1 tsp paprika (which = 1 tbsp for you mathematicians on the market).

** Some eating places serve Bibimbap in a bowl lined with leafy lettuce, whereas others supply lettuce on the facet to make use of as wraps. There’s lots of versatility to regulate the dish to your particular person carb consumption.
