.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.
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
