Teriyaki Tofu Steaks


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




The delicious teriyaki marinade, a blend of dark soya sauce, brown sugar, sake, mirin, and fresh ginger, imparts a wonderful salty, sweet and yet tangy taste to tofu steaks. Sake can be replace with dry sherry, and mirin with white wine or vermouth with 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Teriyaki Tofu Steaks

adapted from taste
  • 60 ml Dark soya sauce
  • 60 ml Sake (or dry sherry)
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 500 g Firm tofu, cut into 1cm-thick slices
  • 2 tsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 Green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Red chilli, diagonally thinly sliced
  • Chilli threads
  • Greens
  1. Combine the soya sauce, sake, mirin, sugar and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Place the tofu in a single layer in a glass or ceramic dish. Pour over the soya mixture with the sesame oil. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 hours to marinate.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet. Cook the tofu for 3 minutes each side or until caramelized. Transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, green onions and chilli. Serve over the greens.

Tofu is so rarely used in my kitchen and I don't know why; Asian influence in cooking here is very strong (must be my European background and not being used to cook it).

With such marinade I would like even tofu :D

I've only had tofu a few times that I can recall. I know it's good for you yet the texture seemed to be an issue for my family. I find it amazing how it becomes whatever you dress it with.

This is a nice marinade that I'd love to try on the tofu if my family would eat it. If not maybe on chicken or steak.

I love tofu as it is healthy and gluten free. Very nice plating :)

Helene Dsouza 10/11/14 11:53

I need to confess, I don't remember when I tried cooking tofu in the past. I feel intimidated when I look at the different tofu types in the stores here. very firm, less firm....
Teriyaki is something I have discovered for myself so saving this for later.

The soy sake mirin marinade must bring incredible flavor to the tofu. A beautiful presentation Angie.

I'd like to see what these look like sliced open. I wonder if they colour all the way through or if there is a contrast between outside and in.

Wow, love the rich color you achieved on these tofu steaks, just wish I could find a natural brand of dark soy sauce that doesn't contain sulphites/MSG. If you have a brand that you know of, I'd love to hear about it! xx
