NOTES FROM OUR TEST KITCHEN...

The name of this Korean sauce literally translates to “pepper sauce,” but we would hate to end the definition there. While chile powder plays a big part in this traditional blend, Born With Seoul's version of the cooking sauce has a nutty, slightly sweet essence that’s brought on by smooth sesame seeds—an integral part of Asian cuisine. Its mellow yet permeable flavor makes it perfect for marinating fish and veggies, but you won’t want to stop there. Use it as a glaze for seared tofu or stir it into sweet potatoes for an amazingly flavorful twist.

Water, Cane Sugar, Chile Powder (Hot Pepper Powder, Salt), Rice Vinegar, Organic Black Sesame Seeds, Miso Paste (Water, Soybeans, Rice, Salt, Alcohol), Salt, Garlic Powder, Soy Sauce (Water, Soybeans, Salt, Organic Alcohol), Sesame Oil

Product Qualities:

MADE BY Born With Seoul IN Prairie Village, KS

So, what is Gochujang, you ask? The Korean condiment adds spice and sweetness to every dish it touches, which is brought on by the combination of red chili, glutinous rice, and fermented soybeans—a rather savory and pungent (and incredibly flavorful) mix. So, what do you do if you’re a native Korean living in Kansas City with limited options—most of which fall short of your health standards? Well, if you’re husband and wife team Nick and Angela, you make your own! The graphic designer and jack of all trades, respectively, let their love of good food lead them to crafting their very own take on the sauce, and after Angela’s mother approved their gluten-free recipe, they started bottling the irresistible sauces for Kansas and beyond!
