Chito, what does the label on the product say? I have a strong suspicion that this is NOT sweet bean paste, but very, very HOT AND SPICY stuff. Anyway, the red bean paste I get in Korean restaurants is pretty darn spicy. :D If you try to use it as a filling for sweet pastries, boy, are your customers going to be surprised! :eek:

Anyway, if it really is the spicy stuff, it's a great condiment with grilled meats of all animals, and even raw meat (it's served alongside the Korean version of steak tartare, along with sliced Asian pear :lips: ).

Let us know if you can figure out its basic flavor profile, and we'll see what else we can come up with.
