Korean meatballs come in a variety of exotic flavors – ginger and sesame oil bring out a delicious Asian flavor. But the real star of this meatball dish is the gochujang. This miso-based Korean chutney is both sour and spicy. It’s spicy, but not so spicy that it spoils the taste. And if you’re concerned it’s “too spicy,” remove excess cayenne pepper from the sauce recipe to cool it down.

Serve the Korean meatballs as an appetizer or side dish. They don’t take long to do it. (as long as you have kochujang in the house) Great “quick and easy” to do on a busy day. In fact, it has more flavor than most fast foods.

Gochujang can be found at supermarkets and supermarkets, where most of the good ingredients are readily available. But if you don’t have the time (and the time to find the ingredients), you can make this Korean chutney at home. See our recipe here. (Easy way with video tutorial)
