Gochujang

I talked myself into buying this. I wanted to use it for an Asian Soup recipe which had this as the main ingredient. It only called for 2 teaspoons. I'll have to think of ways to use this as I certainly don't want to put it to waste...................

The soup came out good too. It was called gouchujang soup. : )

Note* Next time I will omit the shrimp. reheats just dont' work well for shrimp and they quickly become over done. One thing I'm excited about is one of the market baskets near me does daily fresh 1lb containors of chowder fish for $3.99. woo hoo

Sounds really good!

You could always freeze it without the shrimp and add that when you reheat.

We've made several recipes using gochujang from here:

I think also this is used for Thai Red Curry! I want to make that but have not figured out the whole Coconut milk deal..

There are many recipes for that. And also, I Freeze my paste and that works well.

I don't think that Korean gochujang is used in Thai curry. Here is a Thai Red Curry paste.

What problems are you having with coconut milk?

As I cook mainly for one and don't use a lot of coconut milk I buy it in packs of the powder or the blocks. They are more economical than the cans ,which tend to go to waste in my house, as you can just use what you need and put the rest back in the cupboard.

We made this Gochujang Pork Shoulder Steaks Recipe - Bon Appétit and it was really good from the Bon Appetit July 2014 issue. Also made a couple of the accompanying salad recipes, a seaweed salad with cucumber and daikon and a scallion/onion salad. The pork was really good, although I was a bit worried considering how the marinade looked and smelled. The seaweed salad needed A LOT less seaweed for our taste, maybe just a third of what it called for.

We've also made some meatballs since but the website for that is on my tablet which is recharging now. Plus, a batch of kimchee and a pork belly recipe or 2, but all the websites are on the tablet. We ended up getting some gochugaru as well.

There is at least 1 person on here that makes Korean food regularly so hopefully she'll respond.

Jenny turned me on to Gochujang some time ago. I've just used it as a condiment so far and it's sooo flavorful. I do hope Jenny shows up.

Med, that pork shoulder recipe looks like a great place to start.
