Korean's love this fiery spicy pepper paste, it's a real corner stone of their cuisine. It has an amazing flavour that's unlike anything else, it's kind of a cross between miso paste and chilli sauce. Using it will create depth of flavour whilst adding heat and sweetness all at the same time.
It's used as a cooking paste in soups and broths, it's brilliant to use in all kinds of sauces, particularly bbq type sauces and it's the essential condiment for Korea famous Bibimbap dish.

I love preserved chillis and chilli pastes and so was really happy to Go-Chu-Jang here (which I had heard of but not tried). Absolutely delicious - from my first unambitious trial of a tablespoon in a pot of soup to now adding it to the oils at the beginning of a stir fry. Love a novel ingredient. And my single visitor I have had since then got very excited talking about chillis and screamed when I presented my tub of Go-Chu-Jang from the kitchen!
