I have cooked so many dishes - Kimchi, kimchi jjigae, Sundubu-jjigae, "spicy" Doenjang-jjigae , and many others, and none of them have been spicy.
I have tried both the red pepper flakes (course), and the fine powder that the people at the Korean market told me were a little more spicy than the flakes. But still, none of them are spicy at all! What am I doing wrong? Am I missing something? I LOVE spicy food, and am sad that I can't cook any.
