"I still made stock with kelp first, skipping the anchovies as per Maangchi's instructions. I can't recall exact amounts because I haven't made this in a while, but start with about 2tb and keep tasting till it is to your liking. I find that since gochujang paste is slightly salty itself, it's a good amount to start off with to not get too salty of a dish. (I added the fish sauce near the end.)"

"You could try baking it with the broth. Cover the top with aluminium foil."

"I used fish sauce and it turned out fine. Most fish sauces I could find had anchovies as main ingredient."

"I based my own somewhat juk recipe from this. So I am very grateful for the idea. I usually add chicken, half an onion, at least 1 head of garlic, 1tb of ginger, 2sweet potatoes, 1 carrot and any other veggie I like (today it was mushroom!). I also add 1- 1 1/2 cups of cooked red kidney beans in the end for extra nutrition, as well as using red rice. I know it might not sound like any congee or juk, but it's yummy! So thanks for sharing Maangchi, always find your recipes as great inspiration to start my own experiments ;)"
