I submitted a Korean noodle dish for the June International Incident Party featuring the sublimely versatile noodle known as garae tteok in Korean.
1 lb. sticky rice cake sticks (garae tteok)
5 fried fish cakes (odeng)
1/4 head chopped cabbage
2 green onions, cutting diagonally about one inch long and separating the white part from the green part
3 tbsp. red pepper paste (gochujang)
1 tbsp. red pepper powder (gochugaru) or hot paprika
2 tbsp. honey or agave syrup
2 cups water
1/4 cup soju
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. sesame seed oil
2 tbsp. minced garlic
- Presoak the garae tteok noodles for at least 10 minutes.
- While the noodles are soaking, you can start making the sauce. Briefly saute the garlic and then add all the sauce ingredients and stir until they come together and start to come to a boil.
- Add the noodles, fish cake, cabbage and the white part of the green onion and boil for about eight minutes.
- Then add the green part of the green onions and continue to cook until the noodle are completely cooked through.
- Serve hot with rice and Korean side dishes.
