Dduk Bbok Ggi - Rice Cakes with Soy Sauce - (간장 떡볶기)

As I've mentioned before, every time I take Munchkin to the K market with me we end up buying a package of dduk. This week was no exception. While you can make dduk gook or spicy dduk bbok ggi, today I decided to make a simple soy sauce dduk bbok ggi for Munchkin to enjoy.

Here's how you can make it at home...

In a cup mix together the following:
  • 1/4 CUP soy sauce
  • 1/4 CUP water
  • 2 TB honey powder
  • 1 TB sugar
  • 1 TB corn starch
  • 1 TB rice wine
  • OPTIONAL: dash of beef bullion (pictured below)

I was at the K-market the other day and they were selling this powdered beef bullion (Korean style). I normally choose to avoid any beef or anchovy dashida since my Hubby is super health conscious and doesn't enjoy the preservatives packed in those products. But the lady selling this said that it's 100% organic with absolutely no MSG so I thought I would try it out this time.

First take 1 TB of sesame oil and 1/2 TB of minced garlic and saute about 1/4 cup of beef until well done.

Then add the soy sauce mixture to the beef and bring to a boil. Let it boil for about 15 minutes to ensure the beef is nice and tender.

Finally add your dduk (this is fresh dduk) and let it boil for about 5-10 minutes.

Once the liquid is almost gone you're ready to serve and enjoy!


  1. I actually like this version better than the spicy kind. Thanks for the recipe:)

  2. i usually put in onions and pah in there... tons of garlic... mmmmm so so good.

  3. I made this tonight for dinner, but I added 1 whole onion, napa cabage, and 1 red bell pepper. It was sooo yummy! Thanks for the recipe, I will make this again!

  4. This is so cool! I really want to know how they make it! Thanks a lot.
