V's So Damn Ono Spicy Tofu Sauce

That's not the real name of the sauce, but that's what I want to call it.  My cousin V shared some with me and I loooooved it. She got the recipe from here

Below is my version.  I added a little more honey than the recipe calls for ('cause that's what V did) and choke more green onions ('cause I kinda didn't understand the recipe). Supposed to be one stalk. I put around four.


Cut tofu into 8 to 20 pieces-your preference how big pieces you want.  Put paper towels on a dish cloth and lay pieces on paper towel to help absorb moisture from tofu about 10-15 minutes. 
  1. Heat a pan and add 1 to 2 tbs of vegetable oil.
  2. Add the tofu and lower the heat. Cook over low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes until the bottoms of the tofu pieces turn golden brown.
  3. Turn over each piece and cook another 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer the cooked tofu to a serving plate.
  5. Make yangnyeomjang (seasoning sauce) in a small bowl by mixing these ingredients: 
    • 1 clove of minced garlic
    • 1 chopped green onion
    • 2 tsp hot pepper flakes
    • 2 tbs sugar (or honey) 
    • 3 tbs soy sauce
    • 2 tsp sesame oil
  6. Spoon the sauce evenly over the tofu, and sprinkle some roasted sesame seeds and more chopped green onion over top just before serving.
  7. Serve as a side dish with rice

LOl. Love the name of the tofu! The most humbug is frying the tofu. Looks like the right amount of green onion too. More is better! V

You're gonna like it, Aunty!

Hope you get to make it, Les.

V, it was good even with all the green onions!

Tofu looks yummy. Never tried the spicy variation. I eat it the old fashion way, heat the oil, add shoyu and onions, pour it on the tofu . Ono with rice.
