From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s dish combines juicy shrimp with a beloved Korean ingredient: “tteok,” or rice cakes, known for their signature chewy texture. To make the most of their unique consistency, we’re cooking the rice cakes in two steps. First, a few minutes undisturbed in the pan creates an irresistibly crispy surface. Next, we’re adding a bit of water to help soften them and bring out that delicious chewiness. Wrapped in a flavorful black bean, chile pepper and soy sauce, it makes for a warm and comforting meal on a cold night.

Add ¼ cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cabbage has wilted and the water has cooked off. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
