    Didn't have sesame seeds, but the oil added a nice flavor. I could see the seeds making that even better. Definitely would make again. I think i will be using a lot more Gochujang going forward.

    Not really a fan. I dont like the crunchy zucchini so I tried to overcook it to soften it. Aside from the spiciness from the pepper paste, and the sesame oil its pretty bland

    We subbed in thai green curry paste and I think it worked well. We had it with rice. It was a tasty dish while also being quick to cook. The quickness was key for tonight. I did end up throwing in a dash of soy sauce and also felt that worked well.

    Was good. I made it with the Asian beef bites on this app, over jasmine rice. Everyone enjoyed. Not very spicy tho.

    Used Sriracha as that was what I had on hand and it turned out to be very good. Will make again.

    Make this with yellow squash instead of zuchini and garlic chili sauce + a tiny bit of chili powder instead of the chili paste called for just due to what I had on hand. It was really good. Served it with rice and a cucumber salad.
