Pan-Fried Stuffed Tofu With Oyster Sauce

  • 125 g Ground meat
  • 2 Dried mushrooms (soaked in water and chopped finely)
  • 1 stalk Sring onion, chopped
  • 2 slice Ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp White pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Light soya sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • 300 g Tofu
  • 50 g Cornstarch
  • 1 stalk Chopped spring onion
  • 1. 5 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1. 5 tbsp Light soya sauce
  • 90 ml Water
  • 1/2 tsp Chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and stir until the mixture is well-blended. Stir together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut the tofu into 10 rectangles, each about 4x7cm in size. Using a spoon to hollow out the center of each tofu rectangle to make a little box. Pat the tofu 'boxes' dry and dust them lightly with cornstarch. Fill each with about 1 tablespoon of the stuffing, mounding it slightly. Pat each piece of stuffed tofu with additional cornstarch.
  3. Pour enough oil into a skillet to fill 3 inches. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 150C/300F. Deep-fry the stuffed tofu, a few pieces at a time, until the tofu is golden brown and the filling is cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  4. Heat a skillet over high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved oil and swirl to coat the sides. Add green onions and stir-fry until fragrant. Add the sauce and bring to a simmer.
  5. Slip the fried tofu into the sauce and stir gently to coat. Transfer the tofu onto a serving platter, and serve hot.

that tofu dish looks absolutely enticing...tofu is not my fave food but cooked like this it can sure be!

tigerfish 25/4/10 08:06

There is a lot of work to make this. First, you have to prepare the stuffing, then deep-fry then braise. No doubt it is worth the efforts cos the final dish is very delicious.

Cheah 25/4/10 16:59

Your tofu sure is a winner! Looks so tempting!

Meat-stuffed tofu...that makes me smile :) This sounds super tasty!

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets 6/5/10 04:08

This looks tasty, but I don't eat most meat. I bet a shrimp filled version would still be great.

Y 10/5/10 02:48

That looks so good! Incidentally also looks exactly like the kind of dish I love eating but am too lazy to make :P

Katy-Mei 26/9/19 09:32
