[Jook Jang Yeon] No Broth Required Doenjang Paste


Jook Jang Yeon is a famous artisan brand for traditional doenjang, gochujang and soy sauce.

Today, we introduce their No-Broth Required Doenjang Paste! When cooking doenjang stew, one typically mixes doenjang paste with anchovy-kelp broth. But with this paste, you don't need to spend time making a broth. Simply use water.

It's convenient, simple and delicious! And better yet, we couldn't even tell the difference. The paste is that good!

This soybean paste is made with 100% locally-grown, premium-grade soybeans. It's made the traditional way and left to slowly ferment in large earthen pots - in a pristine area called Jookjang.

Jookjang is tucked in a small mountain valley (near Pohang), where it receives ample sunshine throughout the year and steady winds from the nearby ocean. It has the perfect conditions for fermenting traditional pastes like doenjang and gochujang.

From start to finish, it takes Jook Jang Yeon 1000 days to make a batch of their doenjang! They take no shortcuts. Use 100% local ingredients. Even the sea salt is aged for 3 years to reduce its natural bitterness. And the water is dug from 200m underground as well.

It's no wonder that it's one of the best-tasting doenjang pastes we've tasted in Korea (and we've tried many!).

Jook Jang Yeon has won many prestigious award over the years: Grand Prize at 2015 Korea Food Show, Grand Prize at Gyeonsangukdo's Fermented Food Fair, Minister Prize at 2013 Ministry of Agriculture Power Brand to name a few...

They also supply many of Seoul's top-rated Korean restaurant - like Mingles - with their doenjang!

If you want to try a delicious doenjang paste that you can cook in minutes, this is it!
