So so good
I just came across your recipe today as I had gochujang in my food cupboard and most of the ingredients. It was so delicious! Thank you.
Bursting with flavor
This recipe is one of my new favorites! So quick and packs so much flavor. Highly recommend. I didn’t have black sesame seeds (I will soon) so I toasted regular white sesame seeds and it was delicious. Husband loved it as well.
Good looks delicious.
