Looking at some of the pictures and reading the reviews, thought I'd point out to be sure and buy extra-firm tofu. After you drain it, give it a rinse, shake off as much water as you can, then lay on top of a couple of folded paper towels. Put a few folded towels on top, then slightly squish between two plates. You want to pull out the excess moisture which is making it too wet and as one reviewer mentioned "goo". After it's cut into cubes, I'd put it between paper towels and VERY gently squish some more. Don't press so hard you distort the shape. This helps to make tofu cooking more successful. Make sure you saute it on all sides until it's golden brown. Also, you can make a roux with equal amounts of flour and butter (1-2 tablespoons) and paprika, then add to the liquid in your pan to thicken it up. If you still don't like the flavor, consider adding a tablespoon or two of tomato paste. I think that might help a lot.
