Gochujang Mapo Tofu

My kids love MaPo Tofu.  They love the saucy tofu dish over rice.  I have always enjoyed Gochujang.  So I decided to put the two together.  Gochujang MaPo Tofu has a sweeter flavor than original MaPo Tofu. It  tastes great over warm steam rice.  I've added fish sauce as part of this dish to add more dimension to the sauce.  I haven't tried it myself, but I think it will work well as part of a lettuce wrap.

Korean Bbq Pork Sandwich

This is a a great idea for leftover Korean BBQ Pork. Using a store bought barbecue sauce and baking the meat makes this dish quick on preparation.

Korean Gochujang Salad Vinaigrette Over Roasted Broccoli.

GoChujang (Korean hot fermented bean paste) is quickly becoming one of my favorite condiments in the kitchen.  It has such complex flavors - rich, salty, sweet and spicy.  In this vinaigrette, I add vinegar and sesame seed oil to round out the many flavors of GoChujang.  I have used this over roasted broccoli or a simple lettuce/cucumber salad.  Feel free to add to any of your favorite vegetables, roasted or not!

Korean Inspired Gochujang Fried Rice

One of my favorite things to do with leftover rice is to fry it. I saw the GoChuJang paste in my refrigerator and thought, why not? I love the complex flavors the GoChuJang lends to the fried rice. It's sweet, it's spicy, and rich all at once!

Korean Inspired Spicy Jap Chae

Jap Chae is one of my favorite dishes. I love the sweetness of the noodles. I'm used to having these vegetarian, but I added some meat to this recipe. And as I do in most of my dishes, I spiced it up, but feel free to omit the spice. Hope you enjoy it.

Korean Inspired Spicy Pork

My favorite Korean dish - spicy pork served over warm steam rice with lettuce on the side to cool down the palate. My friend from Korea taught me to add the sliced carrots to add some sweetness to the dish.  Gochujang adds a complexity of flavors evident in most Korean cooking.

Korean Spicy Cucumber Salad

This is one my favorite banchans in a Korean restaurant. Cooling and fiery, with a bit of sweet to the round out the flavors.

Noodles With Korean Gochujang And Egg

This is a variation of the Malaysian Dry Wonton Noodles. It uses Gochujang as a main ingredient of the noodle. The egg replaces the meat as a quick alternate for protein.
