  1. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Brown ground pork in a small skillet over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes. Drain fat.

No sesame oil. Maybe try other recipe next time with the cooking sherry.

i love this recipe! i used to make mabo tofu from a mix, but lately i'm trying to make things from scratch to avoid the chemicals that come in processed foods. this was easy to make & you know ...

I substituted green beans for pork (not a meat eater). Delicious and simple -- I had all of the ingredients, save the tobanjan, on hand. Thanks!

I made this recipe with asparagus instead of ground pork because I don't eat meat. I thought it was fantastic!

thanks!

I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out great. I used low sodium tamari instead of regular soy sauce. It was still a little on the salty side I thought....but good anyway.

I substituted ground chicken for the pork and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing!
