Tofu Steak With Mushroom Sauce

Tofu Steak With Mushroom Sauce

Topped with a bunch of mushroom, you can make tofu into a really satisfying dish! It's really delicious.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Firm tofu
2 blocks
Assorted mushrooms of your choice
about 400 g
1 clove
Green onions or scallions
4 to 5 stalks
Oyster sauce
4 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons plus
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon


1. Drain the water from the tofu for about 30 minutes: Put into a shallow container, tilt the container diagonally, and put a weight on the tofu.
2. Shred the mushrooms up with your hands. Slice shiitake mushrooms with a knife, and cut enoki mushrooms in half.
3. Slice the garlic clove thinly, put into a frying pan with a little oil and cook over medium heat.
4. When the garlic starts to get fragrant and lightly browned, add the mushrooms and stir fry.
5. When the mushrooms are softened, add the sake, oyster sauce, soy sauce and pepper and mix in. Add some sesame oil to finish.
6. Cut 1 block of tofu in half vertically, then cut each piece in half horizontally. 2 blocks will make 8 pieces.
7. Dust the tofu pieces all over with flour, heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the tofu. If they won't all fit in at once fry them in batches
8. When one side of the tofu is cirspy and lightly browned, turn over.
9. When the other side is also crispy and browned, put the tofu on serving plates, and pour the mushroom sauce from Step 5 over them. Garnish with some finely chopped green onion and you're done!
