tofu with stir fried kimchi & pork

I love Korean food so much. I crave it all the time & can eat it everyday… it’s just so good! One of my favorite dishes is tofu with stir fried kimchi & pork aka dubu kimchi. I always want to order it when I see it on menus. I’ve usually made a less fancy version by just cooking kimchi, onions & spam but decided to try a legit recipe this time. Don’t get me wrong- I love a bowl of kimchi & spam but this was pretty amazing. I felt like I was at a restaurant. It’s spicy and delicious and perfect with a bowl of rice. I made a whole pan for myself and ate it again for dinner the next day 🙂 Recipe for Tofu with stir-fried kimchi & pork courtesy of: http://www.koreanbapsang.com/2010/10/dubu-kimchi-tofu-with-stir-fried-kimchi.html#.UUXOFhxnrrw Ingredients: 2 cups fully fermented kimchi 1/2 pound (230 grams) sliced pork or pork belly 1/2 onion 2 scallions 1 teaspoon grated ginger 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon sesame oil 2 …

Chinese braised tofu with ground pork

Few mistakes/revisions of my own: I totally forgot to season the tofu with salt & pepper but it still tasted fine, I didn’t even realize I re-read the recipe right now. I also decided not to use cornstarch and I added about a tablespoon more oyster sauce. Eat the tofu with steamed rice and get ready for some deliciousness… I’m ashamed to admit that I almost finished this dish that serves 4… oops, oh well 😛 Recipe courtesy of: http://www.steamykitchen.com/23559-chinese-braised-tofu-with-ground-pork-recipe.html Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 1 block firm or extra firm tofu salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 pound ground pork, beef, turkey or chicken 1 clove garlic, very finely minced 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger 1 cup chicken broth 2 tablespoons oyster sauce 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1/4 cup cool water 1 teaspoon cornstarch1/2 stalk green onion, chopped Directions: 1.
