Panfried tofu with spicy sauce (Dubu buchim yangnyumjang)
- Half package of firm tofu (about 10 oz: 280 grams)
- Soy sauce
- Hot pepper flakes
- Green onion

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.
