"Pan Fried Sesame Tofu with Broccoli"

Ingredients for the main dish: - 14oz. Block Extra Firm Tofu - A pinch of Salt - 2 Tbsp Cornstarch - 2 Tbsp Neutral Oil - 1/2 pound of frozen broccoli - 3 to 4 green onions, sliced - 4 cups of cooked rice Ingredients for the Sauce: - 1/4 cup of soy sauce - 2 Tbsp of water - 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil - 2 Tbsp brown sugar - 2 Tbsp rice vinegar - 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 1 Tbsp sesame seeds - 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
Directions: - Place a few folded paper towels or a clean, lint free dish cloth on a large plate. Remove the tofu from the package and place it on the towels. Place more towels on top, cover with a second plate, and then weigh the top plate down with a few canned goods or a pot filled with water. Press tofu for at least 30 minutes to extract excess water (refrigerate if pressing for longer). - While the tofu is pressing, prepare the sauce so that the flavors have time to blend. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce, water sesame seeds, and cornstarch. Stir until the brown sugar and cornstarch are dissolved, then set the sauce aside. - Cut the pressed tofu into 1 inch cubes, then season with a pinch of Salt. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp of cornstarch over the cubes, then tis to coat. Repeat with second tablespoon of cornstarch our until the tofu has a nice even coating. - Heat a large skillet over medium flame. Once hot, add 2 Tbsp oil and tilt the skillet until the bottom is coated in a thick layer of oil. Add the dusted tofu cubes and let cook until golden brown on the bottom. Use a spatula to turn the cubes to an uncooked side, and cook until golden brown again. Continue this process until brown and crispy on all sides, then remove the crispy tofu to a clean plate. - Add the frozen broccoli to the hot skillet and briefly stir fry until slightly browned on the edges. Don't worry if it's not thawed through yet, it will warm through after adding the sauce. Lower the heat to medium-low. - Give the bowl of sauce a good stir, then pour it into the skillet with the broccoli. Stir and cook until the sauce begins to bubble and thicken (this should happen very quickly). Once thickened, turn off the heat and stir in the cooked tofu cubes. - Serve the tofu and broccoli over a bed of cooked rice, topped with sliced green onions.
Hope you enjoyed this card, and if your not a big fan of Tofu try using chicken instead! This is a great recipe and I thoroughly recommend this! Here is a picture of the batch I made! As always have a fantastic day!
