Probably our favorite dish so far, So-tteok So-tteok was one of Korea’s most popular snacks this year. Koreans like shortening words. The ‘So’ is short for Sausage and ‘Tteok’ is Rice Cake and people call it so-tteok so-tteok. Look how glorious they look!
Ingredients for sauce:
2 Tbp Jayone Red Pepper Paste

6 tsp Ketchup
4 tsp Honey (Or Oligosaccharides)
