Panfried tofu with spicy sauce (Dubu buchim yangnyumjang) by belinda


  • Half package of firm tofu (about 10 oz: 280 grams)
  • Soy sauce
  • Hot pepper flakes
  • Sugar
  • Green onion
  • Garlic
  • Sesame oil
  • Roasted sesame seeds


Slice the tofu into bite size pieces (¼ inch thick rectangles). You should get 10 pieces. Towel off each piece with a paper towel.

Heat a pan with 1 to 2 tbs of vegetable oil. Add the tofu and lower the heat. Cook over low heat about 5-7 minutes.

When the bottom of the tofu looks golden brown, turn it over and cook another 5 minutes.

Transfer the cooked tofu to a serving plate.

Make your sauce in a small bowl by mixing these ingredients:

1 clove of minced garlic, 1 chopped green onion, 1 ts hot pepper flakes, 1 ts sugar (or honey), 2 tbs soy sauce, and 2 ts sesame oil

Spoon the sauce evenly over the tofu, and sprinkle some roasted sesame seeds just before serving.

Serve with rice as a side dish
