The Korean Wave has stormed the Mad Mex kitchen! We're cooking up a Korean BBQ sauce in-house with fresh chopped ginger, whole garlic cloves, onion, soy sauce, nutty sesame oil, brown sugar and—the key ingredient—gochujang, a fermented, hot red pepper paste that might just make you forget sriracha. The result is a spicy-sweet sauce with a savory umami flavor.
You'll find our new sauce in the Korean BBQ Burrito and Quesadilla, both of which also have sliced fresh jalapeños, Jack cheese and bean sprouts (plus peanuts in the burrito). Both are served with a side of kimchi, the fermented cabbage dish that’s essential to Korean cuisine.
We're also tossing chicken wings in this flavorful barbecue sauce with sesame seeds and fresh sliced jalapeños. Wait - there's a bunch of other places we use wing sauce, so let’s try the Korean BBQ there, too. The Wing-o-Rito, Wingo Taco, Wing Wrap, Tofu Wrapture and Boneless Wings are all amazing with a Korean kick.
