Heat the tofu for 1 minute in the microwave. Add it plus finely-choppped mushrooms, chicken breast, grated wheat gluten, and the materials marked with ● to a bowl and mix.
Create bite-sized rounded pieces of the mixture in Step 1 and add them to a frying pan coated in olive oil. Then add sake and steam.
When one side is golden brown flip them over. After they've been cooked through drain them on a plate. If you use a spoon when flipping them over you'll get a meatball shape.
Up to this point the mixture is the same for "Non-Fried Tofu Minced Cutlet For Your Diet" (Recipe ID: 953357), so you can set half aside for that if you like.
Add the materials marked with ○ to the frying pan, and add the meatballs from Step 2. When the sauce has boiled, it's done.
Add some veggies for sweet and sour pork style!
Use 200 g of tofu to get a slightly more rounded shape.
Story Behind this Recipe
While making the minced cutlet (Recipe ID: 953357) I thought I could use the mixture in a sweet and sour dish and that's how I came up with this.
If the mixture becomes soft it'll be difficult to create meatballs (even though the ones in the picture aren't really meatballs either...). Rather than by hand, use a spoon to get a more firmly rounded meatball shape.
