Gochujang (Korean chilli paste) is a staple in a Korean pantry. It is a savoury chilli, sweet and salty condiment made from Korean red chilli, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans and traditionally fermented.
With the upcoming skinnybarbecue release we wanted to ensure all Skinnymixers who are unable to use the commercially available gochujang paste for various dietary reasons can enjoy the amazing Korean flavours too.
You’ll find Gochugaru (Korean chilli powder) in your local Asian Grocer. Gochugaru is red in colour and has a mild to moderate spicy taste with a hint of sweetness. It mainly comes in two kinds which are used for different cooking needs. For this paste you will need the fine powder variety.
Gochugaru tastes quite different to other non-Korean standard chilli powders so it is best not to substitute.
