Korean Rice Cake Soup


TteokGuk or Korean Rice Cake Soup is a nourishing, cozy soup believed to bring a new year full of wealth and prosperity. Popularly served during Lunar New Year, it can be enjoyed all year long.


• Rice Cakes • Sesame Oil • Beef Brisket • Garlic • Fish Sauce • Onions • Salt & Pepper • Toasted Seaweed Egg Garnish ("Jidan") • Eggs • Salt • Avocado Oil


To prepare the rice cakes, soak them in cold water for at least 20 minutes while you make the beef broth.

Cook brisket and garlic, until the meat is mostly browned about 3-4 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil, then allow to simmer for 25 minutes.

To make the egg garnish, whisk eggs together and season with salt. Heat oil, then pour the eggs into a thin, single layer. Cook for 1 minute, flip, and cook for another minute. Slice into thin strips.

Once the meat is tender in the broth, drain the rice cakes and add to the broth with pepper and fish sauce. Simmer for 4-5 minutes until the rice cakes are soft. Add salt if needed.

Serve your TteokGuk hot garnished with beef, egg strips, green onions, and nori pieces.
