What Is Gojuchang?

Definition: Gojuchang

At his sous vide demo in Aspen, chef David Chang talked about his affinity for cooking with gojuchang. Gojuchang (pronounced "go-joo-chong") is a Korean red pepper paste. Usually fermented, it contains dried chile peppers and an emulsifying sweetener such as molasses. The paste is used sparingly for marinating, cooking, and as a condiment for marinated beef, mixed vegetables over rice, noodles, and other dishes. It can be purchased at most Asian markets.

I love using this stuff in galbi ssam, and on eggs too. The smokey flavor is addictive!

I love gotchujang! I have used it in my mother-in-law's traditional Korean recipes (like ssamjang or kal-guk-soo), but it's also a great consistency for salad dressings, meat marinades and other sauces!
