Spicy Korean Ketchup


When I decided to make the Korean Barbecue Burgers I knew we HAD to have thin, fast-food style fries. Then, because the burger was so easy to prepare, I thought why not do a ketchup to compliment? This ketchup had the perfect flavor to pair with the fries and burger. Everything in the recipe is a pantry staple for me except the spicy gochujang. Believe it or not I found that at Target, which is where I went before stopping at the International Market where I had planned on buying it. We’ve made these burgers twice, and both times I made a quick batch of this ketchup. It really helps round out the meal. I’m already dreaming of when I can eat it all again!
