Easy crispy tofu steaks with soy sauce drizzle

Crispy tofu steask with soy sauce drizzle by Yummy Calories

Tofu steaks are delicious and easy to make. My local Asian grocery only sold tofu in one size … family size. I don’t cook a lot of tofu but I was making a ‘popiah’ the other day, which required a small amount of tofu. Needless to say, I didn’t use the entire packet so I was left wondering what to do with 400g of tofu in the fridge, which I had left to ‘dry’ (i.e. not soaking in water).  Turns out … this ‘dry’ tofu is perfect for pan frying, a method which magically makes anything taste nice.


Serves 4 (approx. 224 calories per serve)

Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 15 mins

400g firm tofu, cut into 2″ squares about 1/4″-1/2″ thick
40g flour
canola oil, for frying
3 tbsp soy sauce
0.5 tsp rice wine vinegar
0.5 tsp sesame oil
1 spring onion, stem chopped finely and shoots sliced for garnish
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 chilli, sliced

Note: I use this non-stick pan for pan frying.

Season the tofu squares with salt and pepper and cover all over with flour.

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the tofu squares, about 5 minutes on each side and set aside on a plate.

Meanwhile, mix together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and the chopped spring onion stem.

Drizzle the soy sauce mixture on the pan-fried tofu steaks and garnish with the spring onion shoots and chilli.
