AMW Cooks: Oriental-Style Tofu Dish

Happy Sunday!
It's a recipe day today!  I am so excited to share to you another #AMWCooks dish because I love this dish so much I wouldn't mind eating this daily!  And what I love most about this dish is how easy it is to do even for the "busy" guys and girls!
Oriental-Style Tofu Dish

I call this as simple as Oriental-style tofu dish because I honestly wanted to go this Mapo Tofu, I can't, because this definitely isn't spicy at all!  I can't cook spicy food because whatever I cook for the Mister, the Toddler eat it too!  So I try to whip up healthier dishes as much as possible!

  • Firm tofu.  I buy mind from the supermarket (SM) that has Korean writings!  I find this tofu doesn't taste sour as some of the instant tofu you get in supermarket.
  • Ground Pork
  • Mushrooms.
  • Onion and Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Oyster Sauce and Hoisin Sauce. (I buy Lee Kum Kee)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Corn Starch
How to cook:
  • Slice the firm tofu in small cubes, set aside.
  • Sauteed onion and garlic in oil until garlic turned golden brown and onions transparent.
  • Cook ground pork.
  • Add mushrooms.
  • Add a cup of water and pour in soy sauce, oyster sauce and Hoisin Sauce to taste.
  • Add salt and pepper and adjust sauce mixture to taste.
  • One happy with the taste, bring the sauce to boil and pour in tofu.
  • Let it simmer for a couple of minutes, add water if you want more sauce to your dish. 
  • Turn the heat high, pour in cornstarch mixture to thicken the sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy! 
  • Optional: I also like to use this as a "filling" for fresh lettuce leaves!  
I hope you like this very easy and simple dish for your family!
Share to me your thoughts and ideas on how YOU cook your tofu !
