Few days ago, I shared to you my fascination with Korean food. One of the dishes I usually make is the Dubujorim. It's a spicy braised tofu. This dish is usually serve as a side dish in Samguypsal but you can definitely serve it as a main dish paired with rice or any grains you would prefer. In my case, I paired my Dubujorim with turmeric corngrits.

If you are in the mood to make a new dish, if you are into spicy food, if you are wondering how to make tofu delicious or just simply want to try this Korean dish, here's how you make it.

These are the ingredients you need:

1 pack of firm tofu (500g) slice in thin squares
1 medium sized white onion, chopped
2-3 stalks of green onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp sesame oil

Liquid Mixture
1 tsp Korean red pepper flakes
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup water

If you cook a lot of tofu make sure not to overcrowd your pan because the temperature of the oil will drop and will make the tofu soggy.

In this dish you can sauté the vegetables all together.

Before pouring the liquid mixture in the pan, give it a stir to make sure no residues will be left in the bottom of the bowl.

Let all the flavor be absorbed by the tofu. Let it simmer for a bit.

This will give the dish the Asian aroma.

I'm trying to reduce my rice intake so I served my Dubujorim with corngrits instead. For garnish you can top the dish with sesame seeds and green onions.

If you wish to make this dish and you can't tolerate the spiciness, just remove the Korean red pepper flakes. I hope you will give this dish a try. Annyeong!
