  • Cooking Instructions

    For the sauce

    • Add the cornstarch to a pan and slowly add the vinegar, stirring as you go to make sure there are no lumps.
    • Now add all of the other sauce ingredients and stir well.
    • Place over a medium/low heat and and keep stirring until it becomes thick and silky. Don't stop stirring as it will get lumpy. It will take about 10 minutes. Once thick turn down to the lowest setting possible and keep warm.

    For the tofu

    • Cut the pressed tofu into bite sized cubes.
    • Mix the chinese five spice into the flour then pour over the tofu and toss to make sure every cube is coated well.
    • Heat a fry pan over a medium to high heat. If you want to use oil add it to the pan.It is optional. Using oil will make the tofu crispier. It's still good without though.If you choose not to use oil then be sure to use a non stick pan.
    • Once the pan/oil is very hot add the tofu. Cook on each side until golden brown and crispy. It will take 5 - 10 minutes to cook on all sides.
    • Remove from the heat and set aside. If you used oil put it on some paper towel to soak off any excess.
    • To serve you can toss the tofu through the sauce or you can serve it separately and have everyone drizzle their own tofu at the table.
