Who needs meat? BBQ tofu isn’t just for vegetarians and vegans. It can compete with BBQ classics like brisket, short ribs, and chicken. Serve it with classic BBQ sides like potato salad and coleslaw, or sandwich between a squishy burger bun. Not feeling the backyard vibes? BBQ tofu is just as delicious over rice with steamed broccoli.

Be sure to serve the tofu with more of the spicy sauce on the side. This recipe calls for a quick and easy homemade version, but if you’re short on time, you can make this recipe with bottled sauce. Simply swap in 1 cup store-bought BBQ sauce instead.

No matter how you slice it, the tofu will be delicious, but if you want to cut the steak-like planks as we did, here’s how to do it: Place one block of tofu on a cutting board with a short side facing you. Slice each block vertically three times to create four planks. Repeat with the second block of tofu. You should have eight planks total. 

This BBQ tofu is a great option for weekday meal prep since it will keep in an airtight container for up to a week in the fridge.

  1. Cut each block of tofu lengthwise into 4 “steaks.” Arrange tofu steaks on a double layer of paper towels on a cutting board or rimmed baking sheet. Top tofu with 2 more layers of paper towels, then place a baking sheet on top. Top baking sheet with a heavy skillet. Let sit at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine ketchup, vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, gochujang, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, and onion powder; season with a pinch of salt and several grinds of black pepper. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, whisking often, until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool slightly.
  3. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat; clean and oil grates. Brush tofu steaks all over with vegetable oil; season with salt and black pepper. Grill tofu, flipping halfway through, until slightly firmer and lightly charred grill marks appear, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  4. Generously brush tops of tofu with BBQ sauce and arrange sauce side down. Brush tops with more BBQ sauce and cover grill. Continue to grill until sauce is slightly set, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  5. Transfer tofu to a platter. Serve with remaining sauce alongside.
