Learn about ssamjang sauce. What is it and how to use it.
Ssamjang (쌈장, Korean spicy dipping sauce) is a thick and spicy paste used as a dipping sauce when you make a wrap. This typically involves Korean grilled BBQ on a lettuce, perilla or steamed cabbage leaf.
You simply dab a small amount of sauce with a pair of chopsticks on to a lettuce leaf or piece of meat. Or you can dip the meat into the sauce.
I don’t normally buy a big container for ssamjang sauce, because I only use a small amount of it each time. Below are some pictures of Korean ssamjang varieties available at a Korean grocery store.
