Eggy Bean Curd With Minced Pork

My daughter Mishu love Bean Curd (tofu) with her white rice.I guess tofu is another "must" food staple for us Asian.Even thought Mishu is only half Chinese,she really eat like Chinese.She don't mind eating spicy hot curry or rice everyday.I bought Egg Tofu in a tube shape packaging when I was in Queens weeks ago.I never cook egg tofu before but recently I eat this dish in Malaysia.Actually this dish is quite popular in any chinese Malaysia restaurant.Usually this dish present in a claypot but I don't have claypot...plate will do


Ingredients:


1 tube Egg Tofu(bean curd)


300 gm minced pork


3-4 cloves garlic ( minced)


2 tbsp corn starch


1 tbsp oyster sauce


2 tsp soy sauce


2 dash white pepper


1 tsp chicken bouillon powder


1 cup water


I stalk scallion(cut)


2 tsbp oil







Method:


1:Cut both side egg tofu tube to release the air before cut again in the middle to take out the tofu.Handle with care.Cut each slice 1 -2 inch.


2:Coated with corn starch and pan fried with high heat until golden brown each side.Remove to a plate.


3:Mixed minced meat with 1 tbsp corn starch,soy sauce ,white pepper and 1-2 drop water in a bowl.


4:Heat skillet with 1 tbsp oil ,add garlic,fry for 1 minutes then add in water .Let it boil and add in minced meat mixture,then add in oyster sauce and chicken bouillon powder.Sprinkle some cut scallion on top.Serve warm with white rice.


Note:


You can use any meat like minced beef,minced turkey or chicken.You can also add in shrimp or scallop enhance the flavor.If you're a vegan just omit the meat and add in sweet peas,green peas,snow peas,carrot,mushroom,string beans,Chinese cabbage and other green.


This egg tofu taste better compare with other soft tofu I have cooked so far.The egg tofu texture is eggy and creamy.I definitely will cook this dish more in future.Tofu is a healthy food which make from soy bean.I don't mind letting Mishu eat everyday!!

I also like egg tofu a lot but can't seems to find it here in PA. The next time I go to NY I need to buy a few packets of it. This is my fav way of cooking my tofu too :)

cindy lo:
yes the taste is much better than regular soft tofu

dhanggit:
oh!! poor you.I guess France ppls don't really interested in soy beans.Once you try it ,I'm sure you will love it!

sweetjasmine:
Yes,yes I remember I eat egg white and crabsitck in claypot tofu in KL...very yummy!!

m.Rita:
Why you have to make 2 separate dish?.

icook4fun:
I wonder why PA don't have this tofu.The shelf life is quite long since it's vacuum packed.All the while I thought all asian store in US do carry this item...hmmmn now I'm wrong..

LCOM:
oh!! you have the same problem as Gert to get this tofu?.When I shop inb Chinatown,every store do carry this eggy tofu..Hmmm maybe you should suggest to your asian store owner to sell this tofu .
