Makes me wanna do some of my smoked spicy Korean wings. They blow regular Buffalo wings out of the water.
Got a recipe? I've recently discovered the joys of Gochujang, and I'm looking for new ways to abuse it. I have a funny feeling that it will be the next Sriracha.
Here it is:
SAUCE (for ~ 15 wings-ish, scale for volume) - heat to dissolve sugar. No need to reduce. This sauce is gold.
3 tablespoons Gochujang
1/2 teaspoon Gochugaru (Korean red chili flakes), or to taste
Garlic to taste
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons water
Garnish with sesame seeds and thinly sliced scallions/green onions.
If there's not an Asian grocery nearby, the Gochujang and Gochugaru can be found on Amazon (go figure).
When possible, I like to smoke the wings first, then add to hot oil for a couple minutes to crisp the exterior, then toss with the sauce and garnish last. But the sauce would obviously be great on wings prepared any way you like. Enjoy!
