Recipe Notes

Chef Tips for Making Great Gochujang Jjigae

Be sure to use a stock pot large enough to hold all the ingredients and one that has a heavy bottom. Having a stock pot with a heavy bottom is important because the bottom of the pot will shield the stew from being scorched by the heat from the stove.

Serving Size = 2 cups
