This week we launched our brand new Chopped x Rebel Chilli Korean BBQ sauce and we’ve got some tasty at-home recipes to share with you! We developed this new sauce with our Cork based foodie friend Paul Moore of Rebel Chilli. It’s a sweet, soy, sesame number with a little spice added in. Not only will you be able to get your hands on a jar of ‘Korean BBQ’ to enjoy at home in your cooking, you’ll soon be able to find it on our new Asian marinated chicken across Chopped stores! This jar full of goodness, is Irish made, additive free, preservative free and damn tasty. It’s even got a GOLD Blas Na HEireann Irish Food Awards! *ohhh*

CHOPPED TIP! If you’re a fan of extra crispy tofu, a good tip is to remove as much excess moisture from the tofu as possible. You can do this by pressing the tofu with a clean tea towel both before and after you have cut it into cubes.
