Gochujang Chili Sauce:

  1. Combine soy sauce and garlic in a small bowl
  2. Heat large skillet over medium heat and add peanut oil, Mother In Law’s Kimchi Original Gochujang, sesame seeds, star anise, bay leaf, coriander, and cumin.
  3. Heat until it begins to sizzle, and then turn down heat to low, and cook until sauce darkens a bit. Remove from heat and stir in chili peppers.
  4. Carefully add soy sauce and garlic (watch out for splashing oil!) and stir to combine.
  5. Move oil mixture to a heat resistant bowl to cool.
  6. Once cooled, store in an airtight container. Best if used the next day, so flavors can meld. Also great on leftovers, meat, salads, etc. We used some on scrambled eggs, and it was delicious!
