Tofu and pork are good friends, especially in Korean cuisine. Tofu with Kimchi and Pork Belly, or dubu kimchi, is an amazing match up of mild tofu, fatty pork belly, and spicy-sour kimchi. Doctored up with a few chiles—powdered and fresh—and a drizzle of sesame oil, this is Korean drinking food at its finest.

But you don't have to be knocking back the soju to enjoy Andrea Nguyen's Tofu with Kimchi and Pork Belly from Asian Tofu. It makes for a great anytime meal: quick to assemble, easy to love, and full of a very satisfying array of textures and big flavors.
