Food52 Review: This was a very well balanced marinade. It took no time to put together and the skewers couldn't be simpler. It's the perfect recipe for a barbecue party. I marinated the pork for 3 hours and the result was perfect. The sweet, garlicky, spicy (but not too spicy) taste is definitely a crowd pleaser. Put some Korean chile sauce on the side if you're looking for more spice. This would go great with some rice and maybe some pineapple or kimchi. I am definitely making this one again. Dawne Marie

Alexandra, would sriracha be an acceptable substitute for gochujang sauce?

Loved this, Alexandra. Had to adapt to my skillet thanks to my tiny city apartment, but it turned out super well. So flavorful, and it also adapted well when I threw it into a rice bowl for lunch the next day.
