Tofu Hot Pot
Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Soon dubu is made from very soft, silky tofu, usually in a stone pot (ddook baegi). If you don’t have a stone pot, a metal one will work fine but the presentation won’t be the same. Soon dubu can be made with beef, seafood, kimchi, or really anything you’d like. It can be easily made into a vegetarian dish by using vegetable stock and adding things like Korean zucchini and onions instead of meat or seafood.
