As seen in the February, 2017 Chosun Taekwondo Academy newsletter...
Dobu Jorim is a very popular Banchan (side dish) in Korea. We ate it a lot on our adventures to Korea. Koreans pack this dobu in their Bento lunch boxes all the time. It’s inexpensive and excellent eaten hot or cold. I prefer to eat it hot with a side of rice and Gim (seaweed).
One of my favorite websites is Omma’s Kitchen. I learned how to make this wonderful dish from her fabulous Facebook page . So here is my take on Omma’s Dobu Jorim. Kamsamida Omma!!
1# Firm tofu sliced into 12 squares
Sauce: mix all together
4 chopped scallions
5 TBS soy sauce
2-4 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp Korean red chili pepper
1 Tbs. mirin
2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
Black pepper ½ tsp sugar
Add 3 Tbs vegetable oil to a large saute pan and fry the tofu till golden brown on each side. This takes a while so be patient, don’t keep flipping the tofu back and forth. Let it sit till nice and crispy.
Transfer the tofu to a lidded pot and set over medium heat and pour the sauce over the tofu and gently stir till coated. Cover with lid and steam for 5 minutes.
Serve with rice or just keep in the frig for a quick snack.
I have discovered another Korean Chef on You Tube, her name is Seonkyoung Longest. Her recipes are excellent!!
