This spice rub has become one of our favorites in my family.
It’s awesome sprinkled generously on ribs and chicken wings before grilling. Because it has brown sugar in it, it makes a great dry rub for meats. Our favorites are chicken wings and baby back ribs! Recently, I made party favors of this spice blend with my granddaughters, and I’ve already had requests for more! It’s worth searching for the gochugaru pepper flakes as I really don’t think there is a substitute.
You can add it into ground meat for burgers and meatloaf. Try my Korean meatball recipe for a new twist on an old favorite!

You can find gochugaru in Asian markets or maybe in the Asian section of your supermarket. It's a game changer!
