1 (16 ounce) package
firm tofu, cut into 6 slices
chili garlic sauce
boneless pork loin chops, cut into bite sized pieces
minced fresh ginger
cooked brown rice
chopped green onions
I only used 1 tbsp of soy sauce as I thought it would be too salty, and added a bunch of chopped, lightly steamed green beans in with the tofu. We really enjoyed it and it was very quick to prepare after work.
I love tofu and thought this had a very pleasant flavor. However there wasn't enough sauce for the rice and "something" was missing. I won't be making this again. Thanks, anyway!
To make this go a little further, I used one pork tenderloin, cut into strips. The amount of sauce and seasoning is still plenty. Also, try serving this over some pan-fried noodles. It's excellent: Boil some Asian egg noodles to just tender. Then toss with oil, salt and black pepper and saute in a separate wok or skillet, adding a tiny bit of soy sauce if desired.
I loved this recipe. My husband made it and it's now my favorite dish! It was a perfect blend of ginger and spices. Awesome!
I love making this recipe. I usually add red pepper flakes for extra spice and a little sweet and sour sauce to the mix as the oyster sauce can be over powering. I also usually add veggies such as sweet peppers or broccoli. Omit pork and use veg. stock for a vegitarian dish. Tastes great garnished with fresh corriander.
Very good sauce for stir fry. I skipped the pork, added broccoli, doubled the sauce as others recommended. Next time I would reduce soy sauce as it could use a little less salt. Thanks! update: I have used this sauce a number of times, doubling all ingredients but the soy sauce. I also used shrimp instead of the pork, which came out wonderfully.
I'm trying to cut back on my meat consumption so I substituted broccoli, red pepper and mushrooms for the pork. Other than that I followed this as written. I really liked the sauce portion of this. Just enough flavor without being heavy.
This is a good recipe for tofu... the pork makes the tofu taste less bland and the sauce is very good. I added some broccoli as vegetables and I doubled the sauce.
