What exactly does one do with this seasoned hot pepper paste (gochujang)? Since Koreans like spicy foods, this can be used for a number of different things, as a little side dish to mix with rice, or as part of a boxed lunch set (doshirak 도시락).
7 oz beef (less than 7% fat), minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp sugar
1½ tbsp soy sauce
1 cup hot pepper paste (gochujang 고추장)
4 tbsp corn syrup (mulyeot 물엿)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp roasted sesame seeds
Heat a sauce pan with olive oil, and brown beef, stirring constantly.
Add garlic, sugar, soy sauce, gochujang, and cook for 5-10 min stirring. As a last step add corn syrup, sesame oil, and roasted sesame seeds and cook 2-3 min longer.
You can use this as quick bibimbap sauce or eat alone with some rice.
