Pan fried tofu in soy sauce

Dubu-ganjangjorim 두부간장조림

Hi, everybody!
I’m introducing 2 kinds of Korean tofu side dishes to you today! This one is the recipe for pan fried tofu in soy sauce, and we’ll also have a dosirak review when we’re finished making it (the other dish in the video is Dububuchim-yangnyeomjang).

Let’s start!



  1. Slice the tofu into 10 bite size pieces (¼ inch thick rectangles). Towel off each piece with a paper towel.tofu
  2. Heat a pan and add 1 to 2 tbs of vegetable oil.
  3. Add the tofu and lower the heat. Cook over low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes until the bottoms of the tofu pieces turn golden brown.whitetofu
  4. Turn over  each piece and cook another 5 minutes.pan-fried tofu
  5. Add 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs corn syrup and stir, to caramelize the tofu.dubuganjangjorim
  6. Turn the heat off and transfer the cooked tofu to a serving plate.
  7. Sprinkle some roasted black sesame seeds over top before serving.dubuganjangjorim1
  8. Serve with rice as a side dish, or in a Korean lunchbox.

Let’s review your Korean cooking skill by making dosirak (lunchbox) with this. In this case I also prepared a spinach side dish (shigumchi namul) and a breaded fish pancake (using my cod jeon recipe) to go with the dubu-ganjangjorim.


This dosirak is not only a healthy, well balanced meal, but also colorful and delicious! Try it out!
