Use this sauce for BBQ Beef Short Ribs or any barbecued meat in general. It also does wonders when stirred into regular mayo. I serve this combo with Chicken Skewers and everything from French fries to crudités. This is the best hot sauce ever, and I find myself wanting to smear it on everything.


Makes about 350 ML (12 FL OZ)

  • 130 g (41⁄2 oz) doenjang (Korean soya bean paste)
  • 35 g (11⁄4 oz) gochujang (Korean chilli paste)
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz) mirin
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced on an angle


  1. In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients until smooth. Cover and store in the fridge if not using immediately.

@judyjoochef Instagram profile imageJap Chae noodles are totally habit forming with their toothsome springy texture and nutty roasted sesame oil.  I will throw in any seasonal vegetables— anything from sprouting broccoli, red onions, carrots, and wild garlic shoots. You can easily make this dish vegetarian or plant based, I love it with tofu and a medley of earthy wild mushrooms.  I sometimes even make a luxurious version with sea urchins and caviar. Yum!
