Black Pepper Tofu…

16 Jul

This is my attempt at cooking vegetarian…

TOAST whole peppercorns and coarsely grind with mortar and pestle…. or just do what I did and wrap it in some paper towels and pound away at it with a hammer…

SLICE tofu into even pieces…

COAT with corn starch…

ADD vegetable oil to cast iron skillet and sear tofu on both sides until skin forms a nice crust…

SET aside tofu and add 3 tbsp of butter to hot pan + shallot + scallion + red chili + garlic… (sliced red bell pepper would also be a nice addition at this stage)…

SAUTÉE for a quick minute or two and deglaze pan with dark soy sauce + 1 cup of water…

ADD a dash of Maggi Seasoning and fish sauce…

ADD another cup of water and continue reducing…

ADD tofu slices and top with 2.5 tbsp of black pepper…

REDUCE for another minute or two until sauce bare covers the top of the tofu slices…

TOP with green onion and serve with rice…
