  • 2 sheets korean rectangular fish cakes (Shagahk Oden, cut into squares) (optional)
  • 2 cups cabbage (cut into 1 in squares)
  • 1 carrot (sliced)
  • 12 onion (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
  • 3 cups water (anchovy stock would be preferred if available)

  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash black pepper

directions

  • Using a non-stick saute pan, add the water or anchovy stock and cabbage, carrot and onion and bring to a boil. Add gochujang, garlic, soy sauce, salt and sugar to this mixture.
  • When it reaches a full boil, add rice cake and fish cake and stir. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure rice cakes don't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Taste after the simmer time and adjust seasoning if necessary. Add ketchup, stir in, and sprinkle with black pepper before serving.
