- Combine butter, gochujang, garlic, sesame oil, lemon juice, honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pinch pepper in a food processor; pulse until just combined and smooth.
- Line butter lengthwise in center of parchment paper; roll, encasing butter to make a circular log. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
