    I just checked out the recipe, and it sounds DIVINE. I’m going to make some and refer to it only as dubu jorim, because if I say “tofu,” 2.0 will be afraid to try it. Thankfully, he’s easily fooled by exotic vocabulary.

    Welcome back from your much-deserved vacay! Too bad you can’t have a vacation from vacation when you get back home – I always find it such a grind going straight back to work afterwards. I looooove tofu and your version looks and sounds delicious! You got the perfect sear on your tofu. Heading over to check out your post!

    This is literally one of my favorite ways of eating tofu!!!! Okay so Cynthia, I’m really sorry if I’m being duh-headed and you’ve mentioned this before…but are you Korean? No, right? I thought you were Chinese…? But maybe you are, since you make Korean food so often? 😀

      Nope, I’m not Korean! B2’s mother is, so I learn all my Korean cooking from her more or less. :) And yes, I do have a fierce love for Korean food! 😉

    Welcome back! I can’t wait to go read this… when I first saw this on Sherrie’s blog, I was completely wowed- so simple yet so stunning! I just want to pick a piece of that tofu right off of that plate. This is my kind of food all the way (you deliver right? I’m close by you know!) Now, back to the grind… 😉

    Even though I totally eat tofu plain from the carton — cold, unpressed, untouched — and I love it so, THIS sounds just wonderful. I’m so happy to have invested in a giant package of Korean chile flakes, they are wonderful! Can’t wait to try this…. would certainly make my salads interesting as a topping!…. love to you!

      Oh my gosh, using this in a salad would be so genius! I’ll have to do that the next time I make this! Thank you so much for the inspiration and the kind words :):) hugs back!!

      Ooh, this is so easy — I don’t cook a lot of tofu myself, so I’m sure if I could do it, you can with flying colors. Thank you so much, Monet! :):)

    Love this, Cynthia! :) I do remember eating – and loving this! I’m not a fan of tofu, but was this good! And it uses ingredients i easily have access to, so I’ll make it and let you know how it goes! Do you eat it with some other side?

      Ooh, I can’t wait to hear what you think!! Yes, it’s traditionally served as a small plate with your main meal and rice :) Thank you, sweet lady!

    This looks amazing!!! I love tofu, but making the same ol’ tofu dishes over and over can get a little boring. This recipe looks like a great way to breath new life into the ingredient!

      I totally agree!! I grew up eating tofu in all sorts of Chinese dishes, but I’d never had it braised this way, so this Korean variation blew my mind. Thank you so much, Kathleen! :)

    You never fail to have me craving something I’ve never even had. I don’t even like tofu, but this looks soy damn flawless! (Terrible tofu pun alert!!!)

    I’m going to be in Brooklyn next month and would love some recommendations! Let’s chat soon! <3

    This is all kinds of amazing!! We absolutely loved this last night and I honestly contemplated making it again tonight. If we hadn’t decided to go out to dinner with friends, it would have happened. My mom is making it too because we raved about it so much! Thanks so much for the share, Cynthia! As always, your photos are beyond gorgeous! xo

      Alana, I’m pretty sure this wins as best comment ever. Thank you so, so much! I’m so over the moon that you liked it so much, it’s honestly made my week. A million hugs and thanks for making it and for letting me know!

say hello!
