I recently bought a tub of gochujang to make these kimchi deviled eggs for a party. I've never used the condiment before, but quickly learned it was an incredible thing to work with. Gochujang is a fermented Korean paste made with red chilies that adds a hint of spice without overpowering your dish. It's perfect for sauces and marinades.

These four bloggers have excellent recipes that utilize gochujang. You don't need a lot of the paste for any recipe, maybe a couple tablespoons. If you're looking to use a lot of the condiment, however, try the Korean Fried Chicken which uses a 1/4 cup of gochujang.
