Almost every spicy Korean dish contains a bit of magic sauce known to Koreans as “gochujang” or red pepper paste. This wonderfully sticky and thick sauce adds that iconic kick of spice and hint of sweetness to any dish. The flavor is deeply concentrated, making it ideal for cooking rich stews and flavorful marinades.
Gochujang is unexpectedly versatile in many Korean dishes ranging from noodles to soups to stir-fried meats and veggies. It can even be used on its own as a stand-alone hot sauce! It’s truly a backbone ingredient for Korean cooking and cuisine.
