Crispy Gochujang Tofu
Spice up your simple fried tofu with garlic gochujang.
1 block extra firm tofu, cut into ½ inch cubes
1/2 cup corn starch
½ tsp fine salt
4-5 tbsp GARLIC Gochujang sauce
oil, for frying
water, as needed
For the Assembly
1. Pat tofu dry. Combine the corn starch and salt in a small bowl and toss tofu to coat.
2. In a pan set over medium-high heat, heat 1 tbsp oil, or just enough to coat the pan. Gently fry the cubes of tofu in batches, taking care not to overcrowd the pan, until all sides are golden. Set aside.
3. Reduce heat to low and add half the tofu back to the pan. Add the gochujang sauce. Toss the sauce with the tofu, adding water by the spoonful if required to help the sauce coat the tofu without burning. Add in the rest of the tofu and more sauce and water if required to achieve the desired level of sauciness. Serve warm.
