Add a thin layer of oil to a large frying pan and sauté the king oyster mushrooms on medium-high heat until they’re golden. Deglaze the pan with a splash of Apothic Red and let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the alcohol to cook off. Pour in the stock and the gochujang mixture, stirring well to combine. Add the rice cakes to the sauce and cook on low heat for 3 to 5 minutes to allow them to fully soften. If you’d like to thicken the sauce and to deepen the flavour further, simmer it for an additional 2 to 4 minutes.

Finish & Serve

Ladle a generous portion into a bowl and garnish with a soft boiled egg, a handful of scallions, a sprinkling of sesame seeds and a dusting of gochugaru flakes. Serve piping hot to experience the chewy texture of the rice cakes, and a glass of Apothic Red to round out the full flavours of this dish.
