A Little Guy Woking in His Big Kitchen

Tofu & Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce

I’m referring this from AromaCookery.
100 gms minced pork/chicken/beef
1 300 gm-block tofu, cubed
1 400 gm-can button mushrooms (drained weight 200 gms)*
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
chopped spring onions, to garnish

1 tbsp light soy sauce
0.5 tbsp sugar
0.5 tsp cornstarch

For the gravy
2 tbsp oyster sauce**
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 cup water
cornstarch solution to thicken

1. Mix the minced meat with the marinade ingredients.

2. Heat a wok till hot, add 2 tbsp oil. Fry the chopped chilli, shallot, and garlic till fragrant.

3. Add the marinated meat, breaking it up into fine bits with the frying spatula.

4. Add the mushrooms, oyster sauce, and light soy sauce, stir-frying till everything is well mixed. Add the water.

5. When the mixture starts to simmer, do a taste test and adjust if necessary. Add the tofu, and let the gravy come to a boil again.

6. Gently mix the tofu with the mushrooms and meat, taking care not to break the delicate tofu cubes. Thicken the gravy slightly with cornstarch solution.

7. Transfer to a dish and garnish with spring onions. Serve hot with plain rice.

*The button mushrooms can be substituted with canned straw mushrooms.
