Korean gochujang and Thai sriracha are both bright, potent sauces that make great ingredients or condiments. But their differences go beyond their country of origin. In this video, America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country TV co-host Bridget Lancaster and cast member Elle Simone discuss the sauces’ unique flavor profiles and how to substitute one for the other.

How to Make Your Own Sriracha


Homemade Sriracha

Just as good as the store-bought stuff, but with none of the preservatives.

This top-rated inexpensive blender is notably quiet, doesn’t stain or trap odors, and will get your homemade sriracha silky smooth.

The Best Large Saucepan

All-Clad Stainless 4-Qt Sauce Pan

We simmer the hot sauce in a large saucepan to reduce it and concentrate its flavors. This saucepan can do that and anything else you demand of it.

The Best Funnel
