Bacon and Cabbage

I didn't have corned beef, so I made bacon and cabbage instead. After rendering the bacon down, I used some of the bacon drippings to saute a wedge of cabbage. I seasoned the cabbage liberally with kosher salt, then stewed the cabbage with the bacon in salted water for 20 minutes.

Here's a close-up of it because that's how much I heart bacon.

Duk Bok Gi

Duk Bok Gi is a very popular dish in Korea. Duk is essentially rice cake. Korean rice cakes are typically very doughy and chewy. It's like a dense gnocchi. It's usually cooked with cabbage and korean fish cakes (oden). Sauce is made with gochujang (red pepper paste).
