Have You Heard Of These?
Have you heard of Korean Hot Sauce? How about Korean Red Sauce, Bibimbap Sauce, or Korean Fried Chicken Sauce? They're all gochujang.
While it technically can't be considered a hot sauce because of its Scoville units, it still packs a punch.
It's a less spicy version of sriracha with an umami flavor due to the aging process it undergoes.
What Is In Gochujang?
- Red Chili Powder
- Fermented Soybeans
- Ground Glutinous Rice
Some brands of gochujang will include sweeteners such as honey or sugar.
The chili powder will make it red in color to add a beautiful color to whatever food you add it to.
Is Gochujang Spicy?
There are different levels of spice in gochujang. Here are some of the 5 different heat levels in some of the varieties I've tried. It comes in five levels:
- Mild Hot
- Slightly Hot
- Medium Hot
- Very Hot
- Extremely Hot

What Can I Use Instead Of Gochujang?
Honestly? Nothing. There's not true substitute for Korean Gochujang. It's a wonderful flavor and worth every minute of waiting for it to ship if you can't find it locally.

If you simply can't wait to get your hands on Gochujang, you can try substituting Sriracha. It will still give you a spicy mayo, but the flavor profile will not be the same.
