Expert Tips

*Gochujang is a spicy Korean condiment. This dark red paste is usually made from red chile, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, salt and sometimes a sweetener such as sugar. It is traditionally used in various dishes such as bibimbap, tteokbokki, or also in salads, stews, soups and marinated dishes.

If gochujang is too difficult to stir, warm the sauce in the microwave on High for 10 to 15 seconds.

For extra spicy tacos, feel free to add more gochujang or other hot sauce, like Sriracha sauce.
