Korean tteok, or chewy, steamed rice cakes, can be prepared in countless ways. They can star in gourmet dishes served at celebrations, or in simpler ones enjoyed as daily comfort food. In this recipe, we’re using tteok just like pasta. After boiling the rice cakes until tender, we’re tossing them with a Korean-style “ragù” of ground pork simmered in an aromatic, spiced sauce. With tender baby bok choy, this uniquely flavorful meal is perfect for any occasion.
