Original recipe makes 1



In a medium-size bowl, combine the marinade ingredients. Gently stir in the tofu and coat well. Let marinate for 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours. Cover and chill if longer than 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Pour the tofu and its marinade into a shallow baking dish in one layer. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing once with a spatula. Combine the sauce ingredients and pour over the tofu. Toss to coat evenly. Return to the oven and bake 10 more minutes, or until golden brown. Let sit 10 minutes before serving; it should be served warm, not piping hot.

Love it! Doubled the sauce and marinade and it came out great!

I made a change to the marinade: I add 1 tablespoon each of water and brown sugar, just to give it more of a Korean BBQ flavor. I also used my convection oven to cook the tofu. It's important to make sure the firm tofu is dry before marinating

Mushy and way too spicy. Won't be making this again.

It was very easy. The texture was different, I don't care to have this again.

Good easy recipe that spiced up boring fresh tofu! Will definitely be making this again!
