Korean Pan-Fried Tofu with Spicy Sauce (Dubu Buchim Yangnyumjang)
 
This recipe is delicious, easy and a staple in my household. You will often find this on the appetizer menu of Korean restaurants, or even as part of the banchan, the small dishes that you receive as you wait for the main course to arrive.
