Hot pepper paste

Gochujang 고추장

This fermented staple ingredient adds spiciness and sweetness to many Korean dishes. It’s sometimes labeled as “red pepper paste” in English on the package. Most people buy it in a Korean grocery store, but you can also make your own gochujang at home. Homemade gochujang has a rich complex flavor that’s much deeper than store-bought.

Keep in the fridge after opening.

    Hi Maangchi, I’ve just bought some red pepper paste but it tastes awful, it says brown rice red pepper paste on the package, did I buy the right gochujang or does the others taste the same?

    Hi Maangchi! It’s been a while since I posted here. Recently saw there is a vinegared hot pepper paste in bottle form. Is there any difference with the usual one? Can this vinegared version used for bibimbap too? Thanks in advance!
