You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Line a plate with a paper towel. Cut tofu into 1" dice and place on towel-lined plate. Top with paper towels, then press gently but firmly to remove excess moisture. Set aside, 5 minutes.
While tofu presses, trim cucumber, halve lengthwise, then cut into ¼” slices.
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle. Keep white and green portions separate.
Coarsely chop peanuts.
Pickle Vegetables and Make Sauce
In a mixing bowl, combine white portions of green onions, rice wine vinegar, matchstick carrots, cucumber, and a pinch of pepper. Set aside, at least 10 minutes.
In another mixing bowl, combine Korean BBQ sauce and half the sambal. Taste, and add more sambal, if desired. Set aside.
Cook the Tofu
Line another plate with a paper towel.
In another mixing bowl, toss tofu with cornstarch, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until well-coated.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Add tofu to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden brown, 6-8 minutes.
Transfer to towel-lined plate and season with a pinch of salt.
Warm the Tortillas
Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30 seconds.
