  • Summary

    Gochujang, a very slightly sweet and powerfully spicy Korean chile paste made from gochugaru (Korean red chile), has become a staple in my kitchen, where it adds a more intense, complex bite than other hot sauces. Here I use it to flavor tender beef brisket, along with the gochugaru chile flakes for added heat, sesame oil, garlic, and lots of fresh ginger. If you can’t find gochujang, Sriracha makes a good though slightly less spicy substitute. And if you’re not a coleslaw fan, you can certainly skip it and simply serve some kimchi or a salad on the side.

    Ingredients

    • 4 to 5 pounds beef brisket, cut into 3 or 4 pieces
    • 1 tablespoon dried red chile flakes, preferably Korean gochugaru
    • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 to 3 tablespoons peanut or safflower oil, as needed
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
    • 1 cup lager-style beer
    • 1/4 cup gochujang (Korean chile paste) or Sriracha
    • 2 tablespoons ketchup
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons light or dark brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons Asian fish sauce
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 5 cups shredded cabbage (from 1 small cabbage)
    • 1/4 cup chopped kimchi, plus more to taste
    • 2 tablespoons peanut, grapeseed, or olive oil
    • Juice of 1/2 lime, plus more to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more to taste
