Food Friday

This was again another experiment...tofu with ground pork.

I have always liked tofu, but hubby isn't much of a fan, so buying tofu isn't always on my to-buy list. However, since hubby's rarely at home now (it's job related, and not what you might think. LOL) I thought I'd indulge myself. So, got myself a block of Japanese tofu (the soft kind) and some ground pork...

I know I have read somewhere something about pork-filled tofu and since I couldn't remember the exact recipe I thought I'd just "improvise". First I divided the tofu into four equal parts then placed each one in an aluminum-like container which was brushed with olive oil. The ground pork was mixed with rock salt, freshly ground black pepper, some mixed herbs (rosemary, thyme, marjoram, basil, oregano, and sage), smoked paprika, soy sauce, and loads of mashed garlic. I made a small slit on top of the tofu and placed some meat inside, then proceeded to place some more on to the sides...did the same thing to the three tofu left, too. Steamed it for around 30mins (I wanted to make sure the meat was cooked thoroughly)...and when it was done I sprinkled some fresh spring onions and dried chili flakes on top.

Verdict: Even if the tofu went out of shape, my twelve-year old and I loved it! My two-year old found it weird, but he still ate some, together with steamed rice. lol.

Will definitely cook this again, though this time maybe I should check online for recipes about pork-filled tofu. I think I should have used the 'hard' tofu too, so that it wouldn't go 'melting' on me! lol

i thought i wasn't able to leave my link last night (or this morning rather :p). inlinkz was having a tantrum.

i had sizzling tofu with ground pork in a Japanese bistro. your spices would surely make the tofu tasty.;)

This is so different to me, but sounds and looks really, really good! Thanks so much for hosting. My picture didn't show up again...I don't know why it does that to me sometimes. grrr.... =)

I love tofu and your dish looks extra yummy. A must try!:)

The stuffed tofu recipe I follow is a Chinese-style using firm tofu and braised in a little liquid or pan-fried.
