Ssamjang Sauce

Pin It

Ssaamjang (쌈장) is a mixture of Gochujang (고추장, Korean spicy chili paste) and Doenjang (된장, Soybean paste).

I use this sauce for dipping when I make wraps with lettuce to eat meat. I don’t normally buy a big container for this, because I only use a small amount of it each time. It is about 2,000 won (US $2.10) for a 500g container.

This is the picture of the Ssamjang I am using.
