Ingredients

  • 1
    lb Dry rub bacon
  • Bacon grease
  • 2
    tbsp Gochujang
  • 2
    tsp Fermented black bean paste
  • Rice cakes
    (flat)
  • 3/4
    cups Water
  • Soy sauce
  • Green onions
  • Cilantro
  • Sichuan peppercorns

Instructions

1
Cook 1lb bacon until it's crisp. Save the extra bacon grease.
2
Add bacon grease to wok and heat for a minute. Add 2 tbsp of gochujang and 2 tsp of fermented black bean paste. Stir well for 2 minutes, so thoroughly mixed.
3
Add the entire bag of rice cakes to the wok, using hands to separate any that are stuck. Mix so each piece is covered.
4
Add 3/4 cups of water and a couple little spurts of soy sauce. Give it a light stir, and then cover with a lid. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring in between.
5
Cook uncovered on medium low heat until the sauce reaches the consistency shown above.
6
Use kitchen scissors to cut up the bacon and stir into the rice cakes. Add green onions and cilantro.
7
Grind sichuan peppercorns with a mortar and pestle and add to the rice cakes. (If you are sensitive to spice, I wouldn’t add this since it is very spicy.)
