What an interesting recipe! Where in the Asian grocery store would I find dduk?


I was so happy to find an asian recipe that doesn't use a hot sauce, due to a medical problem I can not have anything hot & spicy.  I did not like the vegetables in the recipe so what I used was one white onion, 2 cloves garlic, broccoli, green beans, 1 can of bamboo shoots and carrots.    I cooked it in Toasted Sesame seed oil, and dumped a bunch of sesame seeds on top of everything. I found a 2 LB bag of rice cakes so I used the whole thing.  Used 1/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce, the sauce and vegetables are delicious.  However I have never had rice cakes before so I do not know what they are supposed to taste like.  I did boil them in some water first cause they were hard, but I wasn't sure exactly how long I should've done that for.  I don't know if the rice cakes are done or not, but if they are I do not like the way they taste, not that they have much of one.  I will do exactly what I did next time except maybe add a red bell pepper & minus the rice cakes.


So yummy! I used the sliced rice cakes though (the ones in the shape of ovals). I also added lots of spicy sauce. So yummy!


I believe this is the Palace version which is less spicy.  The more common, spicy Ttekboki uses the guchu jang.


this recipe is a great way to use extra ddeok.  i imagine the exclusion of gochujang is probably personal preference, or simply not part of this particular recipe. either way you prefer it , it's a tasty meal.


That's how I make dokbokgee, but where's the red pepper paste?!? I feel it's not complete without a good whopping spoonful of gochuchang (red pepper paste).
