You guys…I went a little crazy last time I was in a Korean market. I love Korean hot pepper paste and thought I would totally be able to eat my way through one of the bigger tubs…..so I bought 2kgs of gochujan (which is about 4.5lbs). Yeah, that baby’s going to be around for a while. I think we might’ve made a dent in it by now.
I will say this, you don’t even need to know anything about Korean food to use this. Just put it over veggies and meat and you’re all set. You just need to like spice because it is most certainly spicy. They sometimes have numbers on them, and unless you’re very very brave I suggest not getting anything higher than a 3. Usually I get a 2, but this tub is a 3 (of course they were out of 2s).
We added a little bit of sesame oil to give it a bit of extra flavor. This is a great quick meal, and I think we’ll be making it more often from now on. It’s also super easy to make vegan. You can either eliminate the sausage all together or sub in some tofu.
