  1. You can also use it in soups or stews, just to add a little something extra to the flavour. it's not (usually) terribly hot. it can also be used as a dip by itself, with grilled beef.

    1. I whisk in some sesame oil, chopped scallions and minced garlic and use it in vegetable and shrimp stir-fry dishes.

      1. add about a tablespoon of it and whisk in some sesame oil and sugar. then you can take some romain hearts and dip a piece in as you eat it with some korean meat (bulgogi, galbi, spicey pork, spicey chicken) and rice.

        1. cook it with rice cakes which you can buy frozen in any asian market. In South Korea its common to see it as street food cooked with fish cakes (its in the frozen section in the korean market).

          1. i had some with garlic fried broc yesterday...great spicy-earthy tone
