I made a video for you guys with a step by step tutorial on how to make this Korean Spicy Soft Tofu Stew so check it out below, and follow along with the ingredients and recipes below the video:


1. Make the Red Hot Chili Oil

- Low heat

- In a bowl-shaped pan or wok, after heating, pour in oil of choice

- Cut up your garlic

- Mix in Korean Chili Powder and Chili Pepper Flakes

- Refer to the video to see what consistency should look like before next step

2. Meat

- Bump to medium heat

- Next step is to put in your meat of choice into the red hot chili oil cooking in the pan (we used shrimp)

- Mix up the meat with the chili oil

- DO NOT cook your meat all the way through. For shrimps, you only want it halfway cooked since it will cook throughout the rest of the cooking process

3. Veggies

- We like to do a mix of onions, mushrooms, and zucchinis. Whatever you use, just chop it up how you like, ready for tossing into the pan

- Mix these veggies with everything in the pan

- Cut up green onions and hot green pepper for topping the dish off after cooking

4. Soft Tofu

- To serve 7 people, we used 4 soft tofu cases. You'll see in the image that after you put the tofu in, it'll look like a lot but it's not. This is normal.

- After putting the soft tofu into the pan, let it boil for 10 minutes

After putting the soft tofu in... portions for 7 people

5. Three Things to Top it Off

- Green Onions

- Hot Green Pepper

- Splash of fish sauce



- Oil (we used avocado oil)

- Chopped Garlic Slices

- Chili Powder (Korean one if you have)

- Chili Pepper Flakes

- Meat of choice (we used Shrimp)

- Salted fermented shrimp (saeujeot)

- Onions

- Zucchini

- Mushroom

- Green Onion

- Hot Green Pepper

- Fish Sauce

- Tofu cases (we used 4 cases to feed 7 people)
