Recipe: Spicy Korean Hot Tofu Pot (Stew)

Recipe: Spicy Korean Hot Tofu Pot (Stew)

Recipe: Spicy Korean Hot Tofu Pot (Stew)

1 tablespoon sesame oil
A couple tablespoons of garlic
2 tablespoons Hot Pepper Paste (Gochujang)
2 tablespoons Hot Pepper Powder
1 bunch of enoki mushrooms
1 egg
about 7 oz of beef, chicken or veggie stock
1 package of tofu

Pour about 1 tablespoon of sesame oil into pot. Add garlic and sautee. Then drain the tofu and place into pot w/ 2 heaping tablespoons of hot pepper paste. Mix tofu up breaking it into bits and mixing w/ hot pepper paste. Add just enough beef stock to cover the tofu. Add 2 tablespoons of hot pepper powder for a more spicy flavor. Allow mixture to boil. Wash enoki mushrooms and cut off the ends. Add enoki mushrooms just at the end. Make sure to cover them in the stew. Then just before serving crack a egg into the mix. Serve over white rice.

I love this dish. It's not exactly authentic since I don't own a claypot and improvised with the recipes I have found. :) I think it's pretty tasty though. It is a nice spicy stew. I'm in love w/ the Gochujang flavor. I could eat w/ a spoon. :D The key is this hot pepper paste and powder. You can change the amounts of pepper paste/powder to add depending on your likes. My hubbub loves this dish as well. My friend told me about the key ingredients and the basic steps to make it in a conversation through instant messanger. I have since looked up different recipes and improved upon it. She compared it to making instant noodles! It's that easy but so much more tasty. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. We've eaten it many times since I first learned how to cook it.

Ooh. I just had something similar (with beef bits instead of enoki mushrooms) from an eatery called "Korean Tofu House" - think that was a recommendation from Tigerfish. Ate this for the first time. Think I can eat it again :)
BTW - nice new template :)

This is one of my favorite Korean dishes as well. I like minced beef and clams in mine. Add kimchee too. You can even add Spam! :P

Now i know what is Gojujang!! Been seeing them in korean supermarts but never buy them (coz I don't know what to do with them). I love love love korean hotpot stew(love began in Korean Tofu Hse. Yes, simcooks).
I also tried making it my own, not really authentic but I simply like that "korean" taste in it :D Yummy yummy! My home hotpot has seafood, tofu, mushrooms, and egg.

This does look like the ones we get from Korean restaurant. Good stuff. The only thing you are missing is the stone bowl they usually serve in.

How many servings is this for?

jks said...

Oh something else - is this kimchi soup? Or is this meant to be something thicker?

BuddingCook said...

JKS - It's meant to be thicker. It's about 4 servings w/ rice.

what do you mean by "hot pepper powder"? cayenne pepper? is there some kind of generic "hot pepper powder" in asain markets? thanks.
