Braised Tofu with Minced Pork and Shrimp Recipe


You all know I love my tofu, I cook Tofu dishes at least once a week and I've found the best Firm Tofu in grocery stores!  It's a Korean brand and so far, I've only purchased 1 out of 50 sour ones!  You all know sour tofu are boo-boo unless you are eating Stinky Tofu!

This is the exact brand with price lifted from Honestbee website via Robinsons Sueprmarket.



So here's my simple recipe but made a great impact to the family becaues of the fresh shrimps added!
Ready to know how to cook this simple dish?


Ingredients:
  • Firm Tofu
  • Ground Pork
  • Fresh shrimps cooked and peeled.  
  • Shrimp water (the water used to cook the shrimps)
  • Soy sauce
  • Hoisin Sauce
  • Onion and garlic
  • Pepper
  • Cornstarch slurry
  • Optional: Enoki Mushrooms
Steps:
  • Cook shrimps for 3 minutes max.  Lift the shrimps and peel them off saving the shrimp water.
  • On a separate pan, saute garlic and onions and add ground pork.
  • Add enoki mushrooms.
  • Pour soy sauce, hoisin sauce, pepper to taste and stir well, add a bowl of "shrimp water" (the one you used to cook the shrimps).
  • This is the time to taste everything and it is okay if it is a bit salty as you will add in shrimps and tofu later on.  The reason for adding Firm Tofu on the latter part is for them not to break from all the stirring.  As for shrimps, best to eat shrimps cooked just right, overcooked will lead to dry and hard-to-chew shrimps.
  • Once you're happy with the sauce, add cornstarch slurry, turn off heat and pour cooked shrimps and sliced firm tofu.
Voila!  You're done with the restaurant-tasting Braised Tofu with Minced Pork and Shrimps!
