Gochujang is a condiment that is used alot in Korean cuisine. It makes a flavoursome and spicy base for soups, stews, various marinated dishes and salads.
Gochujang can make dishes spicier (depending on how spicy the chilli used is), but also sweeter and smokier.
Gochujang’s primary ingredients include Korean red chilli powder (otherwise known as Gochugaru), glutinous rice powder, powdered fermented soybeans, and salt. Korean chilli peppers are spicy yet sweet, making them ideal for gochujang production.
