Fried Tofu with Pork Sauce

Submitted by: LMDIENER

Introduction

If 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.

Ingredients

    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




Directions

Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and set aside for later use.

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.
