In this weeks video I will be making a Doenjang Molasses Chili Bourbon Chicken Wings Recipe. It is delicious! Doenjang? What’s that? People ask me all the time. Well, Doenjang is a Korean soybean paste. No! It is not miso it is soybean paste. Doenjang is made by taking dried soybeans and boiling them in a brine. When the boiling process is done the Doenjang is formed into blocks and set out in the sun. Doenjang is very pungent and stronger in flavor than white or red miso that I have had from other countries. It is also thicker and grainier as it is not produced as smooth as miso is. Many factories that produce Doenjang just make it with the soybeans and the brine but some factories and my local Korean supermarket add dried and ground anchovies! I LOVE anchovies! These anchovies really add to the pungent aroma and flavor of Doenjang. If you have ever had Korean Jjigae of any kind the main constituent is Doenjang. Many people use Doenjang as a dipping sauce or even a spread on crackers. Yummy! Doenjang is considered along with Gochugaru to be essential sauces of the cuisine of Korea!
