Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the ground pork with the soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, cornstarch, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Marinate at least 10 minutes.
  2. Place the tofu in a microwave-safe dish. Place the pork over the tofu. Discard any remaining marinade. Top with green onion, carrots, and chile pepper. Cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the plastic wrap to vent steam.
  3. Cook 5 minutes on High in the microwave, or until vegetables are tender and pork is cooked to desired doneness.

This was very tasty. I found it when looking for something to make as part as the South Beach diet. Low carbs, excellent flavor. I cooked it over a bed of cabbage and rice wine vinegar, and the steam was able to cook all the ingredients. If you cut the tofu into squares, it makes pretty servings, ready to eat.

I wanted to like this more than I did. Maybe if I hadn't made "Chinese Style Ground Pork & Tofu" the same time, I would have. I did mine in a pan, not microwave. I made more sauce, but that wasn't the problem. It's not bad, just tastes like Americanized Chinese. Also, used reduced fat ground pork & it was a good choice.

Very tasteless and boring. Would not make again- it's quick to make but so plain. I had to cover it in hot sauce to make it taste like anything
