one of the things i love to order at korean restaurants is dukboki, a common dish served at food stalls in korean festivals. i was in the mood for it so i decided to try making it myself!
the original recipe called for cabbage and scallions. sometimes i see it with fish cakes. i decided to keep it all vegetarian and substituted some of the vegetables with sugar snap peas and yellow pepper.
result is a super flavorful, yummy, spicy and sweet meal that was so simple to make. yum!
For the dish
- 16 ounces rice cake
- 2 ounces onion, cut into strips
- 2 ounces carrot, shredded
- 1/2 sweet pepper, cut into strips
- 6 ounces sugar snap peas
- 1/4 cup water
For the sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon red pepper paste
In a cooking pot, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce.
Add the vegetables, onion, rice cakes and water. Mix together.
Cover and cook over a medium flame, stirring frequently. When the sauce thickens and the rice cakes feel soft, serve while hot.
