Fried Tofu with Pork SauceSubmitted by: LMDIENER
IntroductionIf you like tofu this recipe is a delightful, non-vegetarian option. It's based on a recipe given to me by a friend but I've modified it to my tastes.

1 tbsp canola oil
1 block of firm tofu chopped into 1/2 inch squares
8 ounces ground pork
1 cup of mushrooms
For the Sauce
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp brown sugar packed
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less to your taste)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 close chopped garlic
2 tbsp of green onions chopped
Heat canola oil in pan add the tofu and fry it to a consistency you like. I like a bit of golden on most sides of the blocks.
In a second pan fry the ground pork till it is browned, then add the mushrooms and cook till soft. Turn off the heat and reserve the pork mixture.
Add the sauce 1/4 at a time, stir and let sit on low heat for a few minutes. Then add another fourth of the sauce, stir and let sit for a few minutes. At this point add the pork mixture to the tofu, then add another 1/4th of the sauce, stir and let it sit for a few minutes. Finally add the last of the sauce, stir and let it sit for another few minutes. Then it is ready to serve.
Serve with 1/2 cup of rice, sushi rice is delicious or for a healthier option I use short grain brown rice. There are 5 servings.
Number of Servings: 5
