Egg Tofu With Pork And Prawn Mince Sauce 家常玉子豆腐 - "Everyday Pork And Prawns Mince" Recipe 7





Apart from the stuffed chicken wings and boxing chicken, I also made a simple tofu dish using the versatile everyday pork and prawns mince when my dear friend A was over.

As a huge tofu fan I don't get to cook a lot of tofu since the other tummy is not too keen on the soft wobbly delicacy. Fortunately A is huge tofu fan just like me, however it was her first time having silken egg tofu and she was rather impressed with the dish.

You may use any type of soft tofu for this simple homey dish but if you haven't had silken egg tofu before, perhaps it is time?

P.S tofu discs can be first fried in hot oil before being added to the sauce.

2 garlic cloves, chopped
3/4 cup of everyday pork and prawns mince
3 tubes of silken egg tofu, cut into 1.5 cm discs

1 tsp of sesame oil
dash of white pepper
