Gochujang Meatloaf Recipe: A Sweet & Spicy Korean Meatloaf Recipe That's Absolutely Delicious

Gochujang meatloaf is what happens when you have ground beef thawed for dinner but start craving Asian food. This easy Korean-inspired meatloaf recipe is sweet with just a hint of heat. It's definitely a keeper. You could add some Sriracha to the mix for added heat.

Cuisine: Korean/American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 50 to 55 minutes
Servings: 6 


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds ground beef or ground pork (I used ground beef)
  • 1 cup fresh, soft breadcrumbs or panko (I used soft, fresh breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives or green onion tops (I used fresh chives)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 eggs


Here's how to make it:

Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the onions and cook until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.

Combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, gochujang, chives, salt, eggs and cooked onions in a bowl.

Use your hands or a large spoon and mix well.

Loosely shape the mixture into a loaf in a baking dish or loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 to 35 minutes.

To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir.

Remove the meatloaf from the oven and pour the sauce over to cover. Put it back into the oven and bake about 10 minutes more.

Slice and serve.

We really enjoyed this last night for dinner. Because it's just the two of us, I formed another smaller meatloaf, put a little of the sauce on top and froze it for another night. Loved the flavors in this recipe.
