Spicy Tofu Sauce

Just three main ingredients - so quick and easy but so delicious!

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Prep: 3 min Cook: 7 min

Ingredients

Lettuce 1/4
Tofu (firm) 1
Egg 1
Chicken stock 150ml
Soy sauce 2 tbsp
Mirin 2 tbsp
Sake 1 tbsp
Chinese chilli bean sauce 1 tsp
Noodle broth (mentsuyu) 1.5 tbsp
Sesame oil as required
Potato starch in a bit of water as required

Method

1
Roughly chop the lettuce and fry in sesame oil on high heat. It will shrink so cut into large pieces to start with.
2
Just before it's fully cooked, add all the sauce ingredients from stock to noodle broth. Thicken the sauce with the potato starch in water.
3
Add the tofu in the middle and break into 10-12 pieces with the spoon.
4
After 3 minutes when the tofu is cooked, pour in the beaten egg and turn the heat off, allowing it to cook on residual heat.
5
When the egg is cooked, transfer to a serving dish.

Tips & Note

You can make this hotter with more chilli bean sauce, if you like.

Broccoli is a superfood, I used it with tofu in this dish. The peanut satay sauce that you can buy at a supermarket as a substitute for sesame makes it easy to prepare this dish. It's both healthy and easy to cook.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
