 Ingredients List

  • 1 md Firm tofu (carefully
  • Sliced into 1/2 inch
  • Cubes)
  • 1/4 c Ground pork
  • (or ground beef)
  • 3 tb Vegetable oil
  • 2 tb Soybean sauce
  • 1/2 tb Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tb Chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 c Water (or unsalted
  • Chicken broth)
  • (optional). mixture of
  • 1/2ts cornstarch and 1Tb
  • Cold water


step 1. heat the oil on the fry pan. 2. add in ground pork, stir fry them
until cooked (lightly brown) 3. scoop ground pork to one edge of the fry
pan, and add chopped garlics 4. stir fry garlic and ground pork few times
and then add soybean sauce, sugar, and salt to taste(I prefer not to add
too much) 5. careful slide the tofu cubes into the fry pan. Tofu is
fragile, so after they are set into the pan, DONT stir fry them. if you
really need to move them, PUSH them tenderly by the flat side of the spoon.
6. add water to boil to 10 min. (close the lid on and simmer, and I prefer
a longer time to 20 minutes if I am not in a hurry) 7. now you can smell
how good it is to cook with soybean sauce and sugar in chinese food, after
the tofu cubes absorb the sauces and are done, spread over the mixture of
cornstarch and cold water and heat up to boil again until the sauce becomes
a little bit thick, 8. sprinkle the chopped green onion and ready to serve.
be careful to PUSH or scoop the tofu to the serving plate, you dont want to
smash the tofu cubes and let the savory sauces come out of them.:> THis
dish goes greatly with rice.
