Wonderful Side Dish

This Korean dish is usually pan-fried or steamed tofu topped with a lovely spicy sauce. I chose to bake it to lessen the amount of oil used.

Tofu or dubu as the Koreans call it is quite popular in Korea. It is used in many dishes all over Korea. When I shop at my local Korean market – Woo Sung Oriental Food Mart – sometimes they have already in house prepared containers of this dish that i snatch up right away. Yum!!!
