Pepper paste is used in numerous Korean recipes to add that distinctive spicy, sweet flavour. It is traditionally made from fermented chilli peppers, rice flour and soybean paste, (almost like a very spicy miso).
This version has added Shiitake mushroom, which has a strong, woody flavour that adds loads of umami to a dish.
Ready-to-use paste is not just for traditional Korean dishes, but it also works wonderfully as a marinade for meat, and vegetables or add it to any stir fry or stew.
