  1. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine gochujang, gochugaru, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, toasted sesame oil, and water. Add buldak sauce optionally.
  2. Trim the base of the enoki mushrooms, leaving about an inch intact to prevent them from separating. Break them into smaller sections, rinse under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels or a salad spinner.
  3. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the prepared mushrooms and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove them from the skillet and repeat the process with the rest.
  4. In the same skillet, add the remaining oil. Once the oil is heated, sauté minced garlic for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Pour in the gochujang sauce mixture and bring it to a simmer.
  5. Return the cooked mushrooms to the skillet and toss them in the sauce. Allow them to cook uncovered for another 3-4 minutes, flipping them once halfway through, until the sauce slightly thickens and coats the mushrooms.
  6. Serve the dish immediately and enjoy!

A Few Tips:

1. Spicy Enoki Mushrooms pair exceptionally well with freshly cooked rice, acting as a perfect meat substitute or a standalone main dish.

2. For an extra indulgent experience, serve it alongside cheesy ramen to balance out the heat with creaminess.

3. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat them in a non-stick pan over medium heat, adding a bit of water if needed to loosen the sauce.

Now, you’re a pro at cooking Spicy Enoki Mushrooms! Whether you're a spice aficionado or simply looking to tantalize your taste buds, this recipe is sure to leave a lasting impression.
