Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using mahi-mahi, pat dry and cut into 1" dice and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper and coat in cornstarch. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 3, cooking until mahi-mahi reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes per side. If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using diced chicken, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer, pat dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 3, skipping cornstarch, cooking until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    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, and thinly slice into half-moons. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Coarsely chop peanuts.

  2. 2

    Pickle Vegetables and Make BBQ Sauce

    In a mixing bowl, combine white portions of green onions, rice wine vinegar, matchstick carrots, cucumber, and a pinch of pepper. Set aside to pickle, 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.

  3. 3

    Cook the Tofu

    Line another plate with a paper towel. In another mixing bowl, toss or gently combine tofu, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt and 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.

  4. 4

    Warm the Tortillas

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with tofu and drizzling with BBQ sauce (to taste). Top with pickled vegetables and garnish with peanuts and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
