Ssam literally means a wrap and Jang means a sauce. If you ever wondered why the names of many Korean sauces end with 'Jang' (e.g.Gochuhang or Ganjang), you know it now. It means a sauce. Ssam and Jang, together makes a dipping sauce for grilled meat which is often served in a lettuce wrap. Click on How to eat Samgyupsal to see what I mean.
Ssamjang is made in a mixture of soybean paste, chili paste, minced garlic and sesame oil. I just buy ready-to-eat Ssamjang in Korean market. If you prefer home-made, you can easily make it by mixing the following ingredients:
soybean paste (2 tbl)
chili paste (1 tbl)
sesame oil (1 tbl)
honey (1/2 tbl)
scallion (1 stalk, finely chopped)
garlic (3 cloves, minced)
sesame seeds (2 tsp)
