Preparation

  1. First cut the onion, garlic and the white part of the spring onion into small cubes. Also cut the tofu into cubes of approx. 0.5 x 0.5 cm. Do not forget to wash the tofu with cold water before cutting.

  2. Season the minced meat with salt and pepper before frying.

  3. Now start frying the garlic, onion and spring onion with a little oil.

  4. After about 1 minute on high heat add the minced meat.

  5. Fry everything until the minced meat is almost done. You can do this with high or low heat.

  6. Then add the gochugaru, soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar to the pan and stir well.

  7. Mix the 400 ml water with 1 tbsp chicken broth powder and add the chicken broth to the pan.

  8. Now add 1 tablespoon of doenjang and stir well until it has dissolved.

  9. Add the tofu cubes and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

  10. While your food is simmering, mix 2 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. You can also use a little more water, this is just to prevent the cornstarch from clumping together. If this is a homogeneous liquid, put it in the pan and stir continuously. This will make the dish a little thicker. You can use a little more or less cornstarch, depending on how thick you like it.

  11. Boil over low heat for 5 minutes and finally stir in 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. Prepare some rice for yourself.

  12. Now you can serve the Mapo Tofu Korean style with rice, kimchi and other side dishes.

Mapo Tofu is actually a Chinese dish, which is recooked due to its popularity in many other national kitchens. The special thing about this recipe is that almost all ingredients are used from the Korean kitchen. In terms of taste, this dish also plays in the highest league. Of course there are slight differences in taste to the original Chinese version, but I think you will be impressed by this recipe as well.  So try out this Mapo Tofu Recipe Korea!

For Mapo Tofu and other tofu dishes in general please use tofu from an Asian supermarket. I do not recommend the tofu you can currently buy in normal western style supermarkets. I find it simply not tasty and hardly comparable to the tofu from East and Southeast Asia. Maybe this will change with time :) Here I have a somewhat longer info article about tofu, if you want to know more about it.
