Simmered Tofu and Pork Belly Slices

Simmered Tofu and Pork Belly Slices

Thinly sliced pork belly is the best for simmered tofu dishes! The fat and the flavor go perfectly with tofu.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Tofu
1/2 block
Thinly sliced pork belly
2 to 3 slices
Onion
1/4
Water
120 ml
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Sugar
2 teaspoons
Bonito soup stock powder
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Cut the tofu, pork belly and onion into bite-sized pieces.
2. Stir fry the pork belly. Don't add too much cooking oil here; try to draw out the fat in the pork belly.
3. When the meat is cooked and the fat is coming out, add the onion and sauté together.
4. When the onion is cooked add the water, soy sauce, mirin, sugar and dashi powder. When it comes to a boil add the tofu.
5. When it comes to a boil again, simmer for 1 minute, then it's done. If you let it cool down once and then reheat it, the flavors will be absorbed into the ingredients and the dish will taste even better.
