We liked the miso-gochujang pulled pork piled onto soft potato rolls and topped with quick-pickled carrots, sliced pickled jalapeños and gochujang-spiked sour cream.

Wow. And I have never tasted sour cream my entire life.
First time having sour cream. Never tasted it, never ate it because i didn't like how it looked and i don't put that on baked potato so there's nothing i eat that uses sour cream. I decided to try this recipe only because i like go-chu-jang and all things hot and spicy. I was worried about the sour cream taste but the mixture is delicious. I don't know how sour cream tastes but i don't taste anything sour or strange. I am pouring some over my Cornish hen for dinner and will try it with meatballs. Well done, Chef.

Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week says the instruction. Ha! It was gone in a flash at our house. :-) What a "brilliant, Mate" idea to combine sour cream with gochujang. Both my hubby and I love the spicy korean paste / sauce and are always looking for new ways to use it. And although my Brooklyn native, Sicilian heritage husband who grew up with an Italian speaking nonna in charge of the kitchen never has been able to fathom my Portland (OR) native, Anglo heritage affection for sour cream in any form, this recipe had him going "ahhhhh...." too.
