Rapid Vacuum Pickled Cucumbers and Bean Sprouts

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsTotal Time5 mins

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.

Cucumbers and bean sprouts rapidly pickled in the VacMaster VP215 vacuum chamber

Pickling solution
 1 cup apple cider vinegar
 1 ½ tsp salt
 2 tbsp sugar
Pickled ingredients
 1 cucumber, seeded, cut into match sticks
 2 ½ cups bean sprouts, rinsed

In a separate bowl whisk together the vinegar, salt, and sugar until well combined.


Place pickling solution in a vacuum chamber bag, along with the cucumbers and bean sprouts. Place bag in vacuum chamber and run a vacuum cycle. Once the cycle is complete, you can enjoy the pickles immediately or refrigerate them sealed for up to 24 hours.
