Gochujang is a traditional, yet the most essential Korean condiment made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans and salt. It brings rich spiciness to soups, stews and stir-fried dishes. The deep red gochujang paste has kimchi-like flavor and fresh, clean chilli taste. Also, it could be said that this is a form of Korean miso paste. Use gochujang in a marinade for bulgogi beef, and as a dressing for the Korean raw fish and vegetable dish. It also works well with just plain rice.
