I don’t eat a lot of Korean food so I’m not really familiar with the traditional flavours, but if they’re at all similar to the Momofuku recipes for Korean-inspired dishes, I really need to visit to a Korean restaurant soon.
I’m guessing Chang’s Red Dragon Sauce isn’t authentic, but it is really good. A simple syrup is created with sugar and water and left to cool before adding in spicy ssämjang, mirin, roasted onions, sherry vinegar and sesame seed oil. It’s a easy sauce with robust, complex flavour. This sauce would taste great on noodles or even as a dipping sauce.
