Ingredient Notes

Gochujang is very popular Korean Chili paste and comes in various heat levels. It can be easily found in the Asian section of most major grocery stores. If you are avoiding spice this can be omitted or if you are having trouble finding this then Sriracha or sambal is a nice substitute
