Ravioli Buldak - Italian and Korean Food Mashup

Oct 30, 2017

Ravioli Buldak is a wonderful mashup between Korean and Italian foods. Buldak means Fire Chicken in Korean and I originally learned how to make it from Maangchi (link below). Addding tomato paste and Ravioli gives a tangy flavor to the already sweet, savory and spicy dish. Combined with chewy rice cakes and melted cheese on top, each bite is full of flavors and textures.

Ravioli Buldak has become a staple in our family kitchen. If you cannot eat super spicy food, you can get a milder version of gochujang (Korean pepper paste) and use the same amount in my recipe. I've also made vegeterian version of this dish so let me know if you are interested in it.

You can also find the inspiration for my recipe from Maangchi here.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine hot pepper flakes, gochujang, soy sauce, honey, tomato paste, 2 Tbsp sesame oil, black pepper, garlic, ginger, and water. Mix well and adjust the taste to your liking.

  2. Add cubed chicken and mix well with a spatula. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes.

  3. Cook Ravioli 1 minute less than the package's instruction to make sure they are not over cooked

  4. Heat up 1 tbsp sesame oil in a non-stick frying pan, fry rice cakes until lightly browned. Set aside.

  5. Place the marinated chicken into a large frying pan. Cover and cook over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes. Check and stir regularly to prevent the chicken from burning.

  6. Uncover, turn the heat to lowest setting. Add fried rice cake and mix well. Cover and cook for another 5-7 minutes.

  7. Preheat the broiler. Place cooked ravioli at the bottom of a 7x9 baking dish. Pour chicken mixture into the dish. Top off with mozzarella cheese and chopped green onions. Broil for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is browned.

  8. Remove from oven. Let cool for 5 minute.

  9. Garnish with more chopped green onions and serve warm.
