Tofu is one of those foods people either love or hate, and personally, I love it! There is so much you can do with a block of tofu. The possibilities are almost limitless, as long as you prepare it properly (otherwise … ugh).

If you’ve never cooked with tofu before, or if you’ve had a tofu flop, this Korean BBQ Tofu Tacos recipe is for you! It’s so easy to make, and it tastes absolutely amazing. No mushy or bland tofu here!

These tacos were closely inspired by my Korean BBQ Tofu Sliders. I loved those sliders so much, and I wanted to try the recipe another way. Tacos it was!

The highlight of these Korean BBQ Tofu Tacos is definitely the sauce. It’s finger licking good, and I found myself trying to scrape every last bit out of the pan. I challenge you not to do the same … it’s that addictive!

To make the sauce, you’ll stir the ingredients—soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, sriracha, ginger, and garlic—together, then cook everything for five minutes to blend the flavors and dissolve the brown sugar (so simple).

For a smoother sauce, make sure to grate the garlic and ginger. You can use a box grater for this, but I think a Microplane Grater (affiliate link) makes the task much easier.

I absolutely loved baked tofu. It’s already filled with flavor, and it’s really firm.

Baked tofu is delicious all on its own, but it’s even better when prepared with my Korean BBQ Sauce. The sauce starts out thin, but by the time to tofu is finished roasting, it’s thick, sticky, and coats the tofu perfectly. Yum!
