This was a quick dish which I whipped up last Thursday. I had gotten home slightly early and decided to cook something simple based on what I have in my fridge. I still had 1 more tube of Japanese Tofu in the fridge and a small piece of pork tenderloin which would be easy to defrost. With a little bit of mushrooms and carrots, this is what I cooked. A simple, yet delicious dish of tofu.
I decided to place a piece of tofu each on soup spoons just for the thrill of it. It’s quite handy as you can just pop them into your mouth. Otherwise, just arrange the tofu onto a suitable plate for steaming. My daughter was going ooh! and ahh! and was delighted by the “cuteness” of this dish. Perhaps you might want to try this to impress your little ones as well.
This is my recipe for Steamed Japanese Tofu with Minced Pork
- 1 tube Japanese Tofu (cut into 15 cm thickness)
- 50 grammes of minced pork
- 1 piece of shiitake mushroom (chopped finely)
- 3 slices of carrot (chopped finely)
- 1 teaspoon light soya sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
- a couple of dashes of white pepper powder
- 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- a pinch of msg (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon corn flour
Mix minced pork with carrots and mushrooms. Add marinade and allow it to stand for at least 15 minutes.
Place cut tofu on plate or spoons. Add a portion of meat onto the top of the tofu (the meat will shrink when it is cooked).
Bring water to boil in steamer before placing tofu into steamer. Steam for about 10 minutes or until meat is cooked. Serve hot.
