Recipe Notes

*Note: The quality and taste of commercially available gochujang (고추장) varies, depending on brands. Some of the major brand names available in the U.S. are Chungjungwon (청정원), Haechandeul (해찬들), and Sampio (샘표). Each brand makes different types of gochujang, depending on the types or origin of ingredients used. Chungjungwon (청정원) is known for its Sunchang (순창) gochujang. Sunchang (순창) is a town that's famous for making the best gochujang. Some brands note the level of spice on the package, e.g., no. 3 is medium hot and no. 4 is very hot.
