Tteokbokki Gratin

Tteokbokki Gratin

This is an easy and very suitable dish to make for a potluck party.

Ingredients: 5 servings

1 bag (616 g)
1 bag (1 lb)
400 ml
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
◎Soy sauce
2 teaspoons
2 tablespoons
◎Grated garlic
2 cloves
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon


1. Soak the tteokbokki in water. (I don't know why, but my Korean husband always does this.) This time I used 2 types of tteok.
2. Slice the onion and cook in olive oil.
3. Once cooked, add the water and flavoring ingredients. Bring to a boil.
4. Add the drained tteokbokki and cook. Once the liquid has boiled down, add the butter for flavor.
5. Place into a heat-resistant dish and top with cheese. Optionally top with green onion, parsley, or another colored garnish, and bake in the oven until browned.
6. I used this brand of tteok. I recommend a chewy, sticky type.
