(Chinese recipes, prepare authentic Chinese food now!)
If you love tofu, I am sure you have your favorite tofu dish–be it Mapo Tofu, claypot tofu, steamed tofu, or fried tofu. While many people think that tofu is tasteless and plain, I love tofu very much. Tofu can be very versatile and delicious, if you know how to pair it with other ingredients. Case-in-point: the home-style tofu dish shown above.
Home-style tofu is a homey dish, an everyday and humble dish. In Chinese, it’s called 家常豆腐. Every family has their own interpretation or recipe of home-style tofu. My home-style tofu is really simple: a block of tofu, some mushrooms (I used canned button mushrooms), ground pork, and shrimp. The sauce is the popular Chinese brown sauce that consists of oyster sauce and soy sauce. It sure doesn’t look as beautiful and tempting as Mapo Tofu, it’s quite tasty nonetheless, and great with steamed white rice.
Here is my recipe for home-style tofu or 家常豆腐. This tofu recipe also kick starts a series of homey dishes that I am going to share with you here on Rasa Malaysia–recipes that are great for everyday meal, and budget-friendly and great for the current tough economy.
