Tofu Steak With Ground Meat Sauce

Tofu Steak With Ground Meat Sauce

The tofu steak is crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft and light on the inside. The meat sauce is very well flavored, so it's really appetizing.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Tofu
1 block
Ground meat
about 120 g
Mizuna greens
1 bunch
Flour
as needed to coat the tofu
Katakuriko slurry
a small amount
Seasoning ingredients
Sugar
2 teaspoons
Sake
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Doubanjiang
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Cut the mizuna into 6 cm long pieces.
2. Cut the tofu into 1.5 cm thick slices, drain off the water very well, and dust both sides of each slice with flour.
3. Heat up some oil in a frying pan, and put in the tofu from Step 2. When both sides of the tofu slices are golden brown and crispy, take out of the pan.
4. Put the ground meat in the frying pan from Step 3, and saute until browned.
5. Add the flavoring ingredients - sugar, sake, soy sauce and doubanjiang - and mix.
6. Add the mizuna and saute until limp, then add the katakuriko slurry, stirring until the sauce has thickened.
7. Arrange the tofu from Step 3 on a plate, and pour over the sauce from Step 6, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I just put some ingredients that were cheap at the supermarket together, and the results were really delicious! I wrote it down as a recipe so that I could re-create it myself.
