Easy Ddukbokki!

I read a lot of recipes that require a kelp or anchovy broth, but I just used red pepper paste and onions for the main broth. I was a littleeee bit worried that it was going to turn out bland without the kelp and anchovy, but it turned out delicious! This recipe is easy and doesn’t require too many ingredients that you don’t already have.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pack of ddukbokki rice cakes (freshly made is better, but you can get the frozen kind and thaw it out in some water)
  • 4 tablespoons of red pepper paste
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/3 onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 sheets of fish cake cut into whatever shapes you like 🙂
  • 1/3 can of spam cut
  • boiled eggs cut in half (optional)
  • half a pack of cooked ramen noodles (optional)
  • green onions chopped
  • salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Fresh rice cakes from the Korean market! Yum yum! I always leave a few to dip into brown sugar and munch on while making the ddukbokki
