Kochujang Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by J. Ko

This sauce is used in a few Korean dishes; most notably in Bi Bim Bap, but can also be used as a dip for vegetables, a flavouring for soups and stir-fry and as a marinade for grilled or barbecued tofu. I am new to Korean food, but we have a young Korean girl staying with us for 5 months, so I have been trying Korean recipes. She gave my Bi Bim Bap and 8 out of 10! A Korean friend of mine also tried my Kochujang Sauce and told me that my recipe was better than hers. I found this recipe on asiarecipe.com under the Korean sauces heading. Kochujang is a thick, miso-like paste made of soybean paste, red pepper powder and glutinous rice flour. Some brands are hotter than others.

Kochujang sauce is the key to tasty Bi Bim Bap - Taxi drivers' food. This version has the perfect balance of spice and sweetness. It really sets off the rice & vegetables.
