Spicy Chili Oil (Gireum)Tteokbokki
A simple Tteokbokki recipe that is made with Spicy Chili Oil instead of gochujang. In Korean, it’s called Gireum Tteokbokki and it is a popular snack. This means “oil rice cakes”, and this recipe is spicy! If you love spicy food, you definitely love it!
Open rice cakes thawed or refrigerated, boil some water in a deep pan. Water should be enough to mostly cover rice cakes. Quickly boil rice cakes until they become fully soft – about 2 minutes.
Drain cooked rice cakes. Empty out water from the pan (this way you don’t use 2 pans).
Make sauce by mixing gochugaru, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic powder and black pepper.
Toss rice cakes in sauce until each tteok is well coated.
Warm up a saute pan on medium heat and slowly saute the rice cakes for 5 minutes, turning tteok to avoid burning.≪This sauce will burn easily, so do not cook at high heat!≫
Serve with some chopped green onions on top.
