Tips: Look for prepared Ssamjang--a thick spicy paste typically served with Korean lettuce wraps--at Korean markets or online. To make your own: Combine 1/2 cup doenjang, 1/4 cup mirin, 3 Tbsp. gochujang, 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil and 1 clove grated garlic in a small bowl. Makes: 1 cup
The bright red, fiery chile paste gochujang is the quintessential Korean condiment.
