Tuesday’s Cupful: Bottled Kimlan Soy Paste

A hearty substitute for soy sauce

The viscosity of Kimlan soy paste makes it a great base for homemade barbecue sauces .  A (20 oz.) bottle runs for $3.00 and up so shop around for the best price.  Kimlan soy paste can serve as a yummy dipping sauce for fried dumplings, eggrolls, or steamed buns.  The thicker consistency compared to soy sauce also makes this condiment better for seasoning batches of soup or hearty stews.  A little goes a long way.  Expect a strong fermented soy flavor in a sauce that’s similar to gravy.  Look for this Asian condiment at H-Mart, Lotte, or any other favorite Asian foods supermarket.
