  • 3 tbsp Redbloom Bloom Bae
  • Olive oil for the pan

Pork Prep

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Kitchen Tools Needed

  • Large bowl
  • Wok
  • Strainer
  • Lid for wok


Preparing the Rice Cakes

  1. Place the rice cakes in a large bowl and fill with enough water to cover them. Let them soak at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

Preparing the Napa Cabbage

  1. Soak the napa cabbage strips in water for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Drain the cabbage, rinse under cold water, and then drain thoroughly to remove excess water.

Cooking the Pork

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Add the ground pork to the wok. Begin to sauté, breaking it apart with a spatula.
  3. Season the pork with 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Continue cooking until the pork is thoroughly browned. Remove the pork from the wok and set it aside.

Cooking the Napa Cabbage

  1. In the same wok, add a bit more olive oil if needed, and place the napa cabbage. Cook the cabbage in layers, allowing each batch to cook down before adding more. Season lightly with salt during the process.

Layering and Braising

  1. Once the cabbage is cooked, layer the cooked pork back on top of the cabbage.
  2. Drain the soaked rice cakes and carefully add them on top of the pork, ensuring that no rice cake touches the side of the wok to prevent sticking.
  3. Season the layers with additional soy sauce, salt, and 3 tablespoons of Redbloom Bloom Bae.
  4. Cover the wok and reduce the heat to simmer. Let the dish braise for 20-25 minutes.

Finishing Touches

  1. After braising, gently mix everything in the wok to combine the flavors. Adjust seasoning if necessary and add more Redbloom Bloom Bae if desired for extra spice.


Serve your Redbloom Rice Cakes hot, right out of the wok. This dish is a comforting, spicy, and filling meal that is perfect for sharing. The layers of texture from the soft cabbage, chewy rice cakes, and savory pork create a delightful eating experience.

Enjoy your flavorful and hearty meal!
