Quick pickled cucumbers and bean sprouts using a vacuum chamber. Perfect for adding on top of Dolsot Bibimbap, a Korean rice bowl.
Don't confuse a FoodSaver vacuum sealer with a vacuum chamber. FoodSavers can not effectively vacuum seal liquids and you wouldn't achieve the compression effect that makes instant pickling possible. Interested in a vacuum chamber? Check out my review of the VacMaster VP215 here.
