Story Behind this Recipe
Gochujang is originally a fermented miso using koji and chilli, similar to Japanese miso. If you try to make it from scratch, it will take a lot of time and labour. When she used to run a shop, my late grandmother asked a Korean BBQ restaurant owner to give her their recipe for gochujang. I changed it to suit my taste.
This is my own recipe, so adjust the amount of the ingredients to taste. You can store this in the fridge for a long time. When you have time, make it in batches. By adding a little gochujang to stews, braised fish, and dressings, you can easily enjoy a Korean flavour in your dishes.
