Spicy Korean Bean Paste Dipping Sauce

Ssamjang

I like to make mine from scratch so that I can control the flavors and infuse fresh green onion and garlic, but you can also buy this Korean condiment — called ssamjang — premade online or at many Asian markets or look for the new Bibigo brand at Kroger grocery stores. Eat it in a lettuce wrap with Korean kalbi short ribs, or use it as a dipping sauce for grilled vegetables.
