Korean beef and tofu patty [Dong-goo-lang-daeng ]
Dong-goo-lang-daeng is often prepared for a memorial ceremony or picnic lunch box. It’s made of beef mince, tofu and lots of chopped vegetables. Mainly contains more meat so it tastes like meat patty and little bit floury from tofu. Usually it’s fried after coating with flour and egg. In this recipe, I skip these steps so it’s easier and quicker to cook! But no taste difference
Personally, I recommend this food for kids because the size is mouthful and especially kids can’t recognize what vegetables in the patty. If your kid don’t like specific vegetable, just chop it finely and add to the patty mixture! Depending on your taste, you can serve it with tomato sauce or mustard sauce.(I like using tomato ketchup!)
Pre time: 15minutes
Cook time: 10minutes
Ingredients (20 pieces)
- Beef mince (300g= 10.6 oz)
- Tofu (150g= 5.3 oz)
- Chives (35g= 1.2 oz) -or 1 Spring onion
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Tsp Crushed garlic
- 1 Tsp Sesame oil
- ½ Tsp Salt
1. Remove the excess blood from beef mince with kitchen towel.
2. Pat dry the tofu with kitchen towel.
3. Mash the tofu finely with a knife.
4. Chop the chives finely.
5. Put all the ingredients in a big bowl. Mix well.
6. Preheat the sauce pan on low heat. Add some oil.
7. Add beef mixture on the pan. The size is 3cm(1.2 inches) in diameter.
8. Fry for 5minutes each side on low heat until nicely golden brown.
9. Place them on kitchen towel for few minutes before serving to reduce excess oil.
10. Serve it warm. Use tomato ketchup or mustard(any type of sauce you like) for dipping sauce. Enjoy!
- Knead the mixture longer, you will get more sticky mixture. It’s good to shape the round patty (Step 5).
- You can use pork mince instead of beef.
- wipe the pan off with kitchen towel then re-oil after frying once because some bunt egg might be stuck on the pan. (Picture below; right)
- As soon as you place the patty mixture on the pan, press the top lightly with your fingers into shape. (Picture below; left)
- Sogogi [소고기]= Beef
- Dubu [두부]= Tofu
