Korean New Year’s Day Food

Hello!

2 weeks ago, Fab 8 was the Koran new year’s day!

In Korea, we have to eat specific food to be a year old.

That is tteokguk!

I will explain how to make tteokguk for two people in easiest way.

You just need to follow with me : )

IMG_5352At first, let’s look at ingredients for tteokguk.

We need 2 egges, beef, salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground black pepper, green onions, dried anchovy, and sliced rice cake.

IMG_5353You cannot buy these dried anchovy and sliced rice cake in normal markets.

You should go to Korean market nearby your area.

IMG_5354Before handling other ingredients, soak sliced rice cake in the cold water for 15 mins.

IMG_5391Break two eggs and mix like this.

IMG_5382Cut beef into cubes.

If you like meet, you can put it as much as you want.

IMG_5361Heat sesame oil in a pan over medium or medium low.

IMG_5383IMG_5386Sprinkle half of a spoon salt and pepper on beef cubes.

If beef is done enough, set it aside.

IMG_5356Now, you need 5 dried anchovies.

This step is a little hard. You should concentrate more!
