Korean BBQ Tofu "Wings" Recipe


  • 1 pound firm tofu, drained, pressed and cut into triangles

For the Korean BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic (2 - 3 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons chili paste or sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons brown sugar (I used 2)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Arrange the tofu in a lidded container large enough hold the tofu and the marinade
  2. Whisk together the sauce ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the tofu.
  3. Put the lid on and gently tip the container to distribute the marinade.
  4. Let marinade for at least 5 minutes and up to a half hour.
  5. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 450°F.
  6. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. Transfer the tofu wings to the sheet and bake for 30 - 40 minutes, turning the tofu after 20 minutes of so. Be careful it doesn't burn.
  7. While the tofu is baking, transfer all the marinade to a small sauce pan. Add another tablespoon of rice vinegar and a couple teaspoons of sesame oil to the sauce pan.
  8. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Allow the sauce to reduce. It will bubble and foam because of the sugar, but keep stirring. All of a sudden the foaming will subside and the sauce will become thick and glossy. Remove from the heat and let stand until the "wings" are ready.
  9. To coat the wings, pour the sauce into the bottom of a large mixing bowl. Transfer the baked "wings" and gently mix to coat with the sauce.
  10. Arrange on a platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish.
