There is no secret that tofu is one of my favorite foods, and I’m sure if you’re a lover too, you have a go-to recipe. Many people believe that tofu is bland and unappealing, yet I find it one of my favorite foods. Tofu can be a fantastic and versatile foodstuff if you know what to do with it. Take, for example, the dish of home-style tofu pictured above.

It’s a simple, everyday dish like home-style tofu perfect for a casual dinner party. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe for home-style tofu.

It’s a simple recipe: Tofu, mushrooms (I used canned button mushrooms), ground pork, and shrimp. Oyster sauce and soy sauce are the primary ingredients of this dish’s famous Chinese brown sauce.

Even though it doesn’t have the same enticing appearance as Mapo Tofu, it is delicious and goes well with steamed white rice.

  • ASAM PEDAS FISH
  • RESTAURANT-STYLE CHINESE GREENS WITH OYSTER SAUCE

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 shrimps
  • 1 stalk scallions, chopped into small rounds
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 10 canned button mushroom
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 block fresh or boxed tofu, soft or silken
  • 2 oz. (56 g) ground pork

BROWN SAUCE:

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 dashes of white pepper powder
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut the tofu into tiny pieces and blot it dry using paper towels. Set aside the brown sauce mixture after thoroughly mixing it.
  2. Cooking oil and heat in a wok. A few minutes of stir-frying in heated oil will bring out the flavor of the garlic. Add the ground pork, shrimp, and mushrooms. Tofu and ground pork should be stir-fried together to break up the meat into smaller pieces. Before adding the brown sauce mixture, give the dish a brief swirl. The sauce should be heated through and gently stir-fried before serving. Stir in the chopped scallions, and serve immediately with steamed rice.

NOTES

  • If you’re using silken tofu, be extra careful when chopping and cooking it.
