TOFU STEAKS WITH MA-PO PORK SAUCE
Tofu Steaks with Ma-Po Pork Sauce
  • 14 ounces extra firm light tofu
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 ounces lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or hot chili oil
  • 1 cup packed chopped kale
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted  

Heat oven to 450 F. Drain the tofu and cut into four equal slabs. Press with paper towels to absorb excess moisture and place on a non-stick rimmed baking sheet. Brush 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce evenly over the tofu. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and garlic and stir-fry 5 minutes. Add pork, ginger and pepper flakes. Stir-fry until pork is no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in kale and stir-fry 2 minutes.

  Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Place the baked tofu onto four serving plates and top with the pork sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Makes 4 servings.
