Simple Tofu and Pork with Thick Chinese-style Gravy

Simple Tofu and Pork with Thick Chinese-style Gravy

You only need one frying pan. This goes really well with rice. You can put this on a big serving plate to share at the table, or serve it in individual rice bowls.


Tofu (silken or firm)
1 block
Pork (either offcuts or ground pork will be OK)
about 100 g
to taste
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
● Chinese soup stock or Weipa
2 teaspoons
100 ml
● Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Green onions or scallions
To taste


1. Break up the tofu with your hands and heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes to evaporate the water. Alternatively you can squeeze out the excess water in the tofu wrapped in paper towels.
2. Mix the ● ingredients together.
3. Heat some sesame oil (not included in the recipe. Vegetable oil will be OK) in a frying pan. Add the pork (this time I used ground pork) and stir fry until thoroughly cooked.
4. Add the tofu in the pan. Stir fry it a little. Season with black pepper. Stir in the ● seasonings and simmer until soup thickens. Done! Sprinkle on chopped scallions if you like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make something to go well with rice using whatever I had on hand in the fridge.
