Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 2 steaks
- 12 ounces medium-firm tofu
- flour for sprinkling
- cooking oil
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 3 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
- 2 inch piece of daikon, peeled
- 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
- Slice the tofu block in half so you have 2 large thinner pieces.
- Wrap each tofu piece in a paper towel.
- Use a flat board or large plate to press down on the wrapped tofu to expel their water. Alternatively, you can also place the wrapped tofu pieces in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. Let them sit a minute as they will be steamy.
- Sprinkle some flour on the tops and bottoms of the tofu pieces.
- Heat some oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add tofu and cook for 5 minutes. Flip over and cook another 5 minutes.
- When tofu pieces are browned, add soy sauce and sugar to the pan. Allow to melt.
- Place tofu steaks on serving plates, top with sliced onions, the drizzle with the pan sauce. Grate the daikon and ginger and serve alongside.
