Korean Kkotgae Ramen


  • 1 Packet of Korean Ramen
  • 2 Cups Water (~550ml) (add in an extra dash of water)

Fresh Ingredients

  • 1 Korean Kkotgae Crab (frozen works just fine)
  • Small handful of Tteok (Ricecakes)
  • Small handful of Soybean Sprouts
  • 1 teaspoon of Gochugaru Flakes
  • Cheongyang Chili Pepper (optional, slice thinly)
  • Small handful of Chopped Green Onions (For Garnish)
  • Small handful of Chopped Cilantro (For Garnish)


Prep Fresh Ingredients

  • Gently wash the frozen crab to clean-off any impurities or broken shell. Briefly place it on a plate and set it aside.
  • Now, let's prep our garnish: Chop green onion into small pieces. Finely dice ⅓ of a chili pepper into 4-5 thin slices. Roughly chop a stalk of cilantro into fine pieces.

Make Ramen

  • Place 2 cups of water into a pot. Then add-in a dash more of water (we add a dash more for the rice cakes - they like to soak in water).
  • Add the frozen crab into the water. Then place the pot on a medium-high heat and bring it up to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, let it continue to simmer away for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Next, add in the spicy ramen seasoning packet. Then add in the rice cakes.
  • Followed by the ramen noodles. Next, add in a small handful of the soybean sprouts on top of the ramen.
  • Now, add in some gochugaru (1 teaspoon) - to keep the soup looking red.
  • Let the ramen noodles boil for a few minutes - until it turns soft & chewy.
  • Turn off the heat - garnish with the chopped cilantro, green onions and sliced chili.
  • Enjoy ya'll - my favorite ramen!
