[Amazon.ca] Korean Gochujang Pepper Paste $9.99 1kg.

Just got my delivery of this from Amazon. Got the O'food brand and it is sealed and well within its date. Seems like a very good price.

I think my 500g container was around $5 at P.A.T.
a) I might be misremembering and maybe it was a buck or two more
b) There were many brands and I had no idea what I was looking for so I chose a random one, some others may have been differently priced

I'd rather buy a smaller size since those perishable goods.

Usually, kimchi is made with gochugaru (chili flakes), but you can make it with gochujang as well. I've done both and it works.

The one from Amazon has similar price at Korean markets.
This one is less spicy than normal gochujang and usually 1 or 2 dollars cheaper.

What quantites do people typically put into their food? I am looking at the ingredients and see corn syrup as the second ingredient. I'm sure it can be enjoyable in moderation but I'm still curious

For 1-3 portions I usually go with 1 table spoon to the ratio to make the base sauce.

Ratio
Gochujang : Soy Sauce : Sesame Oil : Sugar
= 1 : 1 (soy sauce I usually go half of it or less) : 1 : 1 (or substitute sugar with maple syrup)

Works with most anything tbh

Tteokbokki to Gochujang Pork, Dakgalbi (Spicy Chicken)

Quick glance at reviews suggest a couple people got damage/leaked packages. Wonder if this is a product you want shipped if it seems to break so easily during shipping.

It is a good deal (imho) as this particular one is better than other brand/varieties in my taste testing and afaik is usually a touch more expensive than ones like haechandle which isn’t a bad one too.

I bought two of these already, spotted this deal a few weeks back but it was one of those you can order and it will be delivered later. Arrived this weekend. I previously had a 500g one for roughly same price.

I’ve ordered once and it leaked because purolator tossed it onto the steps. I think the shock caused the seal to break and sauce was everywhere in the box. Amazon sent a replacement this time fedex delivered and the guy walked up with the package sideways even though box clearly marked with an arrow and words “this side up” again the seal in the container broke and sauce everywhere. But most likely was damaged well before drivers brought it to the door.

I’ve never bothered ordering again it just seems too fragile.

gochujang will never make you have the somewhat "authentic" taste of kimchi. Just like a pair of dress shoes, you can use it to play soccer, but it will never feel right.
