18 oz of MORINAGA Mori-nu Silken Tofu Firm 
1 tablespoon of BEKSUL Grapeseed Oil 

Ingredients for the Sauce:
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
¼ cup of diced scallions (green onion)
3 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of sugar
3 tablespoons of SEMPIO Seasoning Soy Sauce (Ganjang)
1 tablespoon of SAMHAK Pure Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon of HOUSEFOODS Ichimi Togarashi Red Pepper (Gochugaru
1 teaspoon of SAMHAK Black Sesame Seed 



Let's make the sauce first!

  • Mince 1 teaspoon of garlic. Dice up ¼ cup of scallion (green onion). And mix in all ingredients (water, sugar, Ganjang, sesame oil, Gochugaru and sesame seeds) into a small bowl mixing them thoroughly. Set aside for now.
Now for the tofu!
  1. Cut the tofu into ½ inch thick rectangular/ square pieces. Pat the tofu dry with a paper towel and set aside for now.
  2. Heat up the teaspoon of grapeseed oil in a non-stick skillet over a medium to medium high heat. Add the tofu pieces gently (tofu can break very easily!) and sear until lightly golden brown on both sides. (About 3 to 4 minutes on each side)
  3. While following Step 2, make sure to pour the sauce over the tofu as it gradually cooks with a spoon until the tofu is coated. Make sure to gently lift the tofu sides so the sauce can get under them as well.
  4. After all the sauce has been poured in, flip over the tofu and simmer for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Then serve cold or warm and enjoy!

*This dish is usually served with a bowl of bap! (Rice) And you can add Gochujang (red pepper paste) to make it super spicy!
