Bean Curd With Minced Pork & Mushrooms

Hey bean curd lovers, here’s another delicious tofu dish produced by using the very basic of ingredients. Sometime simplicity is the best. The original recipe involve the use of a sizzling platter. Because I have none, the only difference is that mine won’t be sizzling hot!

Bean Curd With Minced Pork And Mushrooms

Let’s cook…

Japanese Egg Bean Curd
Use a scissors to cut the side of the egg bean curd packaging carefully. Slice bean curd to about 1cm-1.5cm thickness.

Frying Egg Bean Curd
Fry bean curd in hot oil over high heat until golden brown.

Fried Egg Bean Curd
Place the fried bean curd on a paper towel to drain the oil. Then arrange fried egg bean curd on a plate.

Dried Anchovies
This is the super cute ‘mini’ dried anchovies which I bought from night market. Rinse and make sure they’re dry before deep frying them until golden brown.

Here are some of the ingredients used.

Leave a tablespoon oil in the wok and add garlic. Once aromatic, add minced pork and mushroom and stir-fry until it changes color. Next, add prawns and stir-fry for another minute. Add water and seasoning and bring to a boil. Spread the cooked ingredients over the bean curd pieces. Add fried anchovies, chilies and spring onions. Best eaten with rice.

      Sites changing server. That’s why. Now it’s still a bit unstable. Maybe tomorrow will be okay.
