Microwave the tofu for a minute or two. Drain the water and then use your hands to smash it.
Cut the green pepper and eggplant into 1-cm cubes. Slice the shiso into 5-cm wide pieces.
Cook the eggplant, green pepper, and tofu, in that order, in an oiled, Teflon-coated frying pan.
Add the ★ ingredients to flavor.
Add the shiso last and turn off the heat.
Serve on a plate together with rice and it's complete! If you like it spicy add some ichimi spice.
If you're going to use garlic soy sauce, don't add the garlic directly into the mix. Make garlic soy sauce. See (Recipe ID: 1586295)
Story Behind this Recipe
Tofu is a substitute for the chicken, and the eggplant gives you the fatty meat texture. Use Japan's own herb shiso as a substitute for the basil! The real deal uses oyster sauce, but I made this version using Worcestershire-style sauce. Use Garlic Soy Sauce (Recipe ID: 1586295) for an even more delicious flavor.
