Sotteok Sotteok (소떡 소떡) which is a portmanteau of sausage and tteok (rice cake) and repeated in ref of the skewer was apparently an invention by a Korean comedian. She made it on a TV show and next thing you know, it was the trendiest street food. You skewer little hot dogs and rice cakes and fry them. Then you coat them with this addictive, gochujang-ketchup style sauce, sweet and spicy! It’s also known as tteokkgochi, gochi meaning skewer.

The tteok is crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. This is SO GOOD and so easy to make! Make the latest street food trends right in your own home!
