From the Test Kitchen

For this easy recipe, we’re tossing delectably chewy rice cakes (or Korean tteok) with crisp spring peas, sweet peppers, and cabbage. A soft-boiled egg creates a rich, satisfying layer of flavor to complement the sweet chili-based sauce that deliciously brings this dish together.
