This is a version of gochujang (red pepper paste) that is served as an accompaniment for bibimbap, or Korean mixed rice. You put it on top, then mix it all up with the rice. It is a little bit sweet and a little bit sour.
1 1/2 cup hot pepper paste
1/4 cup rice vinegar or balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp brown sugar, or honey
Mix together all of the ingredients. Put as much as you want on top of the bibimbap.
