Yabo’s Local Style Pork Tofu
Yabo’s Local Style Pork Tofu - a recipe shared with me by my god daughters grandfather. What I learned from him was to “boil” the sauce with the tofu in it, it creates a flavorful textured tofu; similar to what I was served at a favorite long gone restaurant.
1 lb. boneless pork, 1-inch slices
1 TB peanut oil
1 large onion, 1-inch slices
3 stalks green onion, 2-inch diagonal slices
3 thin slices fresh ginger, julienne
1 1/2 TB mirin sake
2 TB sugar
1/2 c. Aloha shoyu
pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 (20 oz.) block firm tofu, 2-inch cubes, drained
½ bunch watercress, 2-inch pieces
In a large skillet over medium high heat, sauté pork in oil. Add onions, ginger, mirin, sugar, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir in tofu; bring to a boil. Simmer 10 minutes. Add watercress; simmer 5 minutes, until no liquid remains. Serves 4.
