Step 1

In a medium bowl, stir together the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, gochugaru, sesame oil, sugar and mirin.

Step 2

Heat a generous coating of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until almost smoking. Add tofu, leaving some room between pieces and cook until golden brown, turning frequently - about 8-10 minutes. Remove the tofu to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining tofu pieces, if necessary.

Step 3

Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the oil and add the sauce mixture and 1/2 cup of water. Return the tofu to the pan and braise over medium high heat until the liquid has reduced to a caramel-like sauce, about 4 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from heat and let come to room temperature. Serve garnished with the scallion slices and sesame seeds.
