KOREAN: Yang Nyum Jang

December 21, 2008 at 4:46 pm Leave a comment

My friend’s Korean mother-in-law had a little cooking school for us last weekend, and this sauce was my favorite part of the day. Yang Nyum Jang is a flavorful sauce that can be used on tofu, chicken, or even simply mixed with rice.

2 TBSP minced garlic
2 TBSP chopped green onions
2 tsp roasted sesame seeds
toasted sesame oil
Korean red pepper powder (gochu garu)
soy sauce (Korean soy sauce will taste better in this recipe–it’s not as salty)

1. Mix the garlic and green onions together.
2. Crush the sesame seeds and mix them with the vegetables.
3. Stir in enough sesame oil to get everything wet but not liquefied.
4. Add the red pepper powder.
5. Mix in the soy sauce bit by bit until you reach the desired consistency for the sauce.
