Recipe Instructions

The spicy red TteokBokki that most are familiar with was given birth in the 1950s. The legend goes that a Korean-Chinese restaurant owner (in Sindang-Dong) accidentally dropped a piece of Tteok (tubular rice cake) in GoChuJang while having her meal. She decided to eat this Tteok that was dropped in GoChuJang anyway and turned out that she loved the taste of these two combinations. And the story goes that this is where she developed the Red Spicy GoChuJang Based TteokBokki. So, many believe that Sindang-Dong is the birthplace of the Red Spicy TteokBokki dish.

To Make The TteokBokki Spicy Sauce

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. Ideally, it would be best if you can make this sauce a few days in advance and let it rest in the refrigerator. Make sure to store it in an air-lock container. If pinched for time, let the sauce rest on your kitchen counter for an hour or two.

To Make The Anchovy Broth From Scratch For TteokBokki

In a large shallow pan, bring water to boil. Add the dried anchovy, cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 minutes on high heat. Remove the anchovy and discard it. Add the rest of the ingredients, cover with a lid and let it cook for 20 minutes on medium heat. Remove all the ingredients and discard them. The broth should taste like the sea, clean and slightly sweet from the onions and radish. Definitely, NOT fishy.

Short Cut/Simple Method To Make The Anchovy Broth For TteokBokki

In a large shallow pan, bring water to boil. Add all the ingredients, cover with a lid and let it cook for 10 minutes. Remove all the ingredients and discard them.

To Make The TteokBokki

Presoak the packaged TteokBokki Thukk/Rice Cake in cold water for 10 - 15 minutes. This presoaking process is to resuscitate and rehydrate the package Thukk/Rice Cake that has hardened from being vacuum sealed. (If you are using freshly made TteokBokki Thukk/Rice Cake from the Korean market, you do not need to presoak.)

In a large shallow pan, bring the anchovy broth to boil on high heat. Add the TteokBokki sauce. (You can all less of the sauce for mild spiciness OR make more of the sauce and add more for extra spiciness.)

This "cooking" process is quick so make sure to have all the ingredients ready.

The heat is remaining at high heat. Add the TteokBokki Thukk/Rice Cake and the fish cakes to the pan. Let it cook for 3 minutes.

- For my Paleo Friends: Sautee the ham cold-cuts or BulGoGi in a non-stick frying pan with some olive oil, on high heat, to get some brown marks on the meat. You do not need to cook the meat all the way. Once you have some brown marks on the meat, add it to the TteokBokki pan.

Then add the cabbage, carrots, and scallions and mix well for 60 seconds or less.

Bring the heat down to medium. Break the ramen noodles in half and add it to the pan. Make sure to bury the noodles in the pan so it can soak up the sauce as it cooks. Add the butter and mix well. Let it cook for a few minutes or until the noodles are al dente.

- For my Paleo Friends: You can add some JapChae OR you can presoak the Sweet Potato Starch Noodles in cold water for 15 minutes and then add it to the TteokBokki, instead of the ramen noodles.

Now if you want to cook the TteokBokki at Table-Side-Cooking/JeukSeok TteokBokki (즉석떡볶이), follow all the steps above and simply cook at the table.

OR as shown in this video recipe, I cook the TteokBokki almost halfway through and once I add the ramen noodles, I transfer the pan to the portable Korean stove and let it finish cooking at the table.

Overall, once the TteokBokki is ready, it should be consumed quickly. Like any cooked pasta, if it sits around, especially in the warm sauce, it will get bloated. The cooked Tteok/Rice Cake/Pasta should taste soft and chewy. Definitely, NOT mushy.

BONUS RECIPE: TteokBokki Course #2 (Spicy Mixed Rice & Fried Dumplings In TteokBokki Sauce)

This is my favorite way to NOT throw away the extra leftover TteokBokki sauce once you are done with eating the TteokBokki. I mean, the sauce is so YUM and it would be shameful to throw it away. (Remember to double the broth and TteokBokki sauce to make this.)

This cooking process is super fast so make sure to have all the ingredients ready.

Using the same large shallow pot where you cooked your TteokBokki, bring the heat to high. Add the pan-fried dumplings around the outer interior of the pan. Then, add the kimchi and rice. (You can always add more rice to make it less spicy.) Mix well for a minute, as the sauce starts to bubble. Then crumble up the toasted seaweed and green onions mix well for another minute. Make sure to use the spatula to scrape up the rice on the bottom of the pan. Add the sesame oil and butter, bring down the heat to medium and mix well until the butter has melted. Turn off the heat. Add the romaine lettuce and perilla leaves. Sprinkle the roasted sesame seeds on top. Your Spicy TteokBokki Dumpling Paella is READY...YUM!!!
