Gochujang, the gently spiced and deeply savory Korean chile paste, is already delicious on its own, but it’s also wonderful when simmered with garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to make a saucy condiment you’ll want to drizzle over everything. Enjoy it over bibimbap, use it as a marinade for steak, or use it to top grain bowls or even congee.
