Kungjung Tteokbokki

Kungjung Tteokbokki

This is sweet soy-sauce-flavored tteokbokki. During the time when Korea was one nation, the Imperial Court (Kungjung) would make this. It's also great as a snack for kids.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Tteok (Korean mochi)
500 g
Thinly sliced beef
100 g
Shiitake mushrooms
2
Carrot
1/4
Green peppers
1/4
Onion
1/2
Japanese leek
1/4
Egg
1
Nori seaweed
to taste
Dashi stock
1 cup
A
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Sugar
1 teaspoon
Water
1/2 cup
Grated garlic
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Ground sesame seeds
to taste

Steps

1. Boil the tteok and drain. Finely chop the beef and vegetables. Separate the egg yolk from the egg white and make a finely shredded omelet.
2. Combine the beef and shiitake mushrooms with the "A" ingredients, and stir-fry. Add the tteok, carrot, green pepper, and onion, and continue stir-frying.
3. Add the dashi stock to Step 2 and cook over low heat while slowly stirring to combine. Add the leek and cook until the liquid evaporates. Turn off the heat and drizzle with sesame oil.
4. Transfer to a dish and top with the finely shredded omelet and nori.
