There has been growing popularity of meatballs and meatball restaurants nationwide over the past several months and experts are declaring bold, ethnic flavors as one of the biggest food trends for 2016 — namely Gochujang Sauce (pronounced Go-CHOO-jang), which they are hailing as the next Sriracha. 

Gochujang is the next, must-try sauce and Noodles & Company is the first national fast-casual restaurant concept to put it on its menu with the addition of new Korean BBQ.

Imagine flavorful meatballs tossed with a sweet and spicy Korean-style Gochujang barbeque sauce — yum!

BBQ Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
