Versatile Korean Spicy Sauce (Gochujang)
One ingredient I make sure to have in my pantry at ALL times is the multi-purpose Korean Spicy Chilli Paste (Gochujang). I use it to stir-fry, as a dip, to mix with noodles and/or plain rice and to make simple spicy stews. These are the ways that the Korean themselves use the Gochujang sauce as well. It is flavourful, versatile and easy-to-use, I simply LOVE it.
I had previously shared the delicious Spicy Korean Chilli Paste (Gochujang) Squid recipe here on Kitchen Missus and that is merely one of the many ways I use the Gochujang Sauce. This particular recipe that I am about to share is one that I use to toss plain noodles or rice in, or to use as a dip for savoury spring onion pancakes, potato cakes or the very basic fried egg. I usually throw in tons of raw minced garlic (because I'm a HUGE garlic person) but do decide on the amount of garlic according to your preferences. Enjoy this wonderful sauce!
