spicy korean dipping sauce

Looking for mellow Asian heat? Well, this sauce combines Gochujang, a Korean chili paste, with rice vinegar to temper the heat.


  • 1/2 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup gochujang paste
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic


  1. Combine all ingredients medium bowl; whisk until smooth. Pour into 12-inch nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat 18 to 20 minutes or until sauce is thick and syrupy, like the consistency of honey; stirring occasionally.

Cook's Tip: This sauce may be prepared up to 4 days ahead of time.

This sauce will intensify in heat the longer it stands. For a spicier sauce, increase the amount of gochujang paste.
