This easy recipe infuses protein-packed tofu with amazing flavor.
- 1 pound extra firm tofu, cut into 1-inch slabs
- 4 ounces soy sauce
- 2 ounces rice wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon chili paste
- 4 ounces mirin
- 1 ounce vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Lay the tofu in a single layer in a low-sided dish. Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, chili paste and mirin, and pour over the tofu. Marinate for 1 hour, turning tofu over after 30 minutes.
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and add the vegetable oil. Remove the tofu from the marinade and sear both sides until brown. Add 4 ounces of the marinade to the pan along with the sugar and reduce to a glaze. Slice tofu before serving.
