To give the ribs a really spicy taste, the recipe calls for some gochujang – that’s a type of fermented hot pepper paste from Korea. One caveat though: you almost certainly won’t be able to find a brand of gochujang without soy. Some people will be fine with such a tiny amount of soy as a seasoning, but if you’re very sensitive or doing a strict Paleo challenge, it’s OK to find another brand of hot pepper paste to substitute.
