Gochujang Smoked Meatballs

bgebrentbgebrent Posts: 17,481
Had some Gochujang hanging around in the fridge needing a purpose. Had bookmarked this 

http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1193953/smoked-spicy-korean-style-gochujang-meatballs#latest

a while ago and teed it up.  Friggin delicious, and hot in a great way(was liberal with the Gochujang).  It's what's for lunch.

    I love this meal. Looks so delicious. Only problem......not enough on that plate.

    Brother Botch, add a bit more moisture than the recipe calls for.  2 T whole milk/stock.  Mod I’d use next time.

    My friends, this is for those who like “hot”.  I like red hot.  If you or your guests are heat sensitive, dial back the Gochujang by half.

    Did you happen to note the fat content of the beef you used?  Market had 95%, 88% and 80%, I grabbed the 80% as usual (and not because it's cheepest).

    Looks amazing!  Love Gochujang!  Found a recipe for Korean BBQ sauce that uses Gochujang, sesame oil, soy sauce and Sprite.  It’s more of a dipping sauce than a thick and sticky bbq sauce, but is super good,

    Oh, meant to mention this on my other post.  I just opened a new brand of gochujang, and it didn't taste quite right.  Read thru the ingredients, and it didn't include fermented rice, which is what I thought distinguished gochujang from other chile pastes.  I'll be going  back to the "tub" I bought on Amazoid.
