From the Test Kitchen

A favorite Korean ingredient, rice cakes (or tteok) lend their delightfully chewy texture to this crowd-pleasing dish. We’re tossing them in our spicy black bean sauce with hearty pork and crisp-tender bok choy, first sautéed in a fragrant blend including ginger, garlic, and scallions.
