Rabokki Sauce:


  • Combine all the rabokki sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Bring the dashi stock to a simmer.
  • Add the sauce and cabbage to the dashi.
  • Add the rice cakes and ramen noodles and cook 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the fish cakes and dumplings and cook 3-5 minutes, until noodles and dumplings are cooked through.
  • Remove from heat and top with 1-2 slices of American cheese.
  • Add eggs to the dish (optional) and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
  • Serve hot.


  1. Substitute chicken stock for dashi if you need to.
  2. If you can't find the mandu dumplings, you can omit them.
  3. Any kind of dried ramen noodle will do.
  4. Choose a gochujang that fits your spice preference (mild to extra hot).
  5. If the mixture gets too thick, add additional dashi or chicken stock.
  6. You can add vegetables like zucchini, cooked radish or anything you like if you want some add-ins.
  7. Don't skip the American cheese - it really does add something special to the dish.
