Dubu Jorim (Korean Braised Tofu) – Carmy

Made with pantry staples, this Korean Braised Tofu (also known as Dubu Jorim), comes together so quickly and easily. Firm tofu is quickly pan-fried and then coated in a savoury sauce to make for the easiest side dish or appetizer for any meal.

One of my favourite ways to eat tofu is this tasty braised tofu. It’s so flavorful and doesn’t require a ton of work which is always a plus. It’s made in one pan and I can make it within a couple of minutes. There’s no need to press the tofu for this recipe (but if you’d like to, you can see my post here on How to Press Tofu), so it comes together even faster!

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make Korean braised tofu.
  • soy sauce — I recommend using low sodium.
  • mirin — a staple in my house, this is a Japanese version of rice wine.
  • sesame oil — I’m a fan of pure sesame oil for this but you can also use toasted sesame oil as well!
  • gochugaru (고추가루) — aka Korean chili/hot pepper powder.
  • brown sugar — I use light brown sugar but regular or dark brown sugar will work as well.
  • garlic — I like to use freshly minced garlic. I always have garlic frozen which is why the photo up above have the garlic as a square piece. Here’s how to freeze garlic.
  • sesame seeds — I always go with toasted sesame seeds.
  • green onions
  • firm tofu — I recommend firm or extra firm tofu to make this braised tofu so it doesn’t fall apart as it cooks.
  • olive oil
