NOTES FROM OUR TEST KITCHEN...

This traditional Korean sauce gets its heat from dried red chillies—which are mild enough to let miso hold up the “sweet” end of this sauce’s bargain. The tang comes later, in a welcomed mouth-coating flavor from garlic powder and soy sauce, balancing all those umami flavors together. This enticing sauce from Born With Seoul works well as a dipper for your veggie platters and even on a cheese plate if you’re feeling adventurous, but it really works its magic best when used as a marinade for slow-cooked chicken (think fusion-style barbecue—this stuff is from Kansas, after all!).

Water, Sugar, Rice Vinegar, Miso (Soya), Dried Red Chillies, Garlic Powder, Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce, Salt

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!
