On the other day, my family enjoyed ‘Yakiniku’, Japanese style tabletop BBQ, and I had some leftover Yakiniku Sauce. As I wanted to use it up, I seasoned pan-fried Tofu with it. Because the result was so good, I tried to cook it again to write this recipe. Why haven’t I thought about this idea earlier? This dish is yummy! Even those who hate Tofu would enjoy it.


Makes

4 Servings

Ingredients

450 to 500g Firm Tofu * I used ALDI’s Firm Tofu
Garlic Salt (OR Salt) & White Pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons Plain Flour
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil

Easy Yakiniku Sauce
*Note: If you have store-bought Yakiniku Sauce, you may wish to use it.
*Note: This sauce is mild and sweet. Alter the amount of ingredients to suit your taste.
1/2 tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seeds *ground
1 clove Garlic *grated
1 small piece Ginger *grated
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoons Mirin
1 tablespoon Sugar
Ground Chilli OR Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) as required *optional

Method
  1. Cut a block of Firm Tofu into 8 slices, and that will make each slice 12-15mm thick. Season with Garlic Salt (OR Salt) & White Pepper, and set aside.
  2. Combine all the Yakiniku Sauce ingredients in a small bowl. *Note: Alter the amount of ingredients to suit your taste. If you have store-bought Yakiniku Sauce, you may wish to use about 4-5 tablespoons of it.
  3. Coat Tofu slices with Plain Flour. Heat Oil in a frying pan that is large enough to cook all Tofu slices, over medium heat, cook Tofu slices until both sides are nicely browned and crispy.
  4. Lower the heat OR remove from the heat, add the sauce, and combine well.
