Ideas on how to use Gochujang sauce with? I don't cook Asian dishes so I'm hoping for using it with American dishes like Mac and cheese 😶

  1. It makes an insanely good marinade and/or dipping sauce. Could mix it with some soy sauce, a bit of sesame oil and kewpie mayo and boom. Or for the marinade, omit the mayo, add in sesame seeds, season to your liking, soak your protein and grill / fry.

  2. You said no Asian recipes, but you can mix almost any pickled or poached veggies with rice and then add gochujang to get a variation on bibimbap. I make this a lot when I'm lazy and have random veggie leftovers. Top with a fried egg and it's absolutely heavenly.

  3. One of my go-to lazy and/or “I have an overwhelming amount of veggies in my fridge that need to get used” dinners.

  4. Mix it in some bbq sauce! Really good to add in marinades. I bet it would be tasty with ranch dressing too

  5. Gochujang is amazing on anything with cheese. It's fantastic on grilled cheese and also on cheese pizza. I don't make burgers at home, but I suspect it would be amazeballs on a bacon cheeseburger.

  6. Use it as a baste or marinade for meats. Grill or roast veggies and toss with some sauce for a cheater "stir fried" dish. Use it mixed with some vinegar as a salad dressing. Use it as a dip for fries or chicken nuggets/wings. Just think of it as sort of an Asian bbq sauce.

  7. To clarify, I don't cook Asian because right now I don't have access to fancy ingredients or really anything expensive besides basics like bread, mac and cheese, eggs, rice etc.

  8. Rice, any veggies, and any protein with Gochujong(and Kimchi if you can get some) will make kick ass stir fries. That's one awesome thing about Korean food; so much of the signature flavor comes from very concentrated ingredients. You don't need to have all sorts of spices, vinegars and oils to build a flavor base, as is common in other Asian cuisines.

  9. I would say, it's best to cut it with a little bit of sweetness, like honey or sweet chili sauce, it has a very bold flavor. I usually mix it with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, rice vinegar, some sambal, garlic, ginger and sesame oil

  10. if possible, you could use it to make stuff like kimchi tofu soup, a honey-gochujang glaze over meats like chicken, shortribs, gochujang butters, etc etc

  11. Ok Korean home cook here. To cook in soups and stir fry, add gochujang, minced garlic, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. To use it as a dipping sauce for meat or mix in rice or noodles, add one more element to the above list: vinegar. Do this on everything!
