Yangnyeomjang – Korean Seasoning Sauce

June 13, 2019

This was a flavorful, not very spicy sauce I used with my recent Korean BBQ dinner I whipped up.  Jim really liked it and it is quite easy.  It can be a dipping sauce, a marinade, or even toss it on some noodles or rice.

Gochugaru is a fermented chili paste of coarsely ground red pepper.  I was surprised to find it at my local grocery store.   I tripled the original recipe for our party of 6 which was too much, doubled would have been good.  Below is the original size.

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 10 min

1 clove garlic, crushed
1 scallion, chopped
