Gochujang Sauce Products
A staple in Korean households for centuries. While it is traditionally fermented over years in large earthen pots outdoors, Chung Jung One has already been producing this sauce for several decades. This is a new take on the Korean chili sauce for the mainstream consumer. All the time preserving the umami flavor that comes from the fermentation. With a natural balance of sea salt and sweetness that is provided by cane sugar.
I love to cook with and try new spices. And this Korean Chili Sauce helps to add a little spice to some of my old recipes. While it is spicy it has just a slight hint of sweetness. My husband says it reminds him of me – Spicy yet Sweet! We have tried it on our chicken wings and ribs so far. I can’t wait for the summer to use it during our cookouts! Vegan & gluten-free it has a distinctive red bottle. We can use it to marinate our meat or add flavor to stews.
Now this beautiful sauce is so amazingly delicious. A blend of the Korean Chili Sauce and fermented soybean paste that creates such a wonderful balance of savory, sweet with just a touch of spice. You can use it as a stand alone dip for meats or veggies. Now I mix it with mayo ( or ranch ) for a tangy yet delicious dip. I think I want to try it on burgers next. The possibilities are limitless.
Didn’t think they could improve on my ketchup. But, they did! A spicy blend of umami sauce while blending in a sweet and tangy ketchup. Which give your ketchup a little kick that you will LOVE. As I said we love spicy and flavorful foods in our house and this is a perfect fit.
