This recipe came from my mom, who got it from Family Circle. I haven't tried it yet, but I will soon! I cut out the oyster sauce from the marinade, but if you want to use it, the original recipe called for 1 tablespoon of bottled oyster sauce.

This was excellent!! I'm really still learning to cook with tofu and have had alot of failed attempts, but this one hit the mark right on!! I only used 1/3 of a package of tofu, so I would suggest if you do make this and use an entire package, to at least double the amount of marinade. If you like extra sauce on your stir-fry, you might want to even consider tripling the amounts. I made it exactly as written and it turned out wonderfully! Thanks MarrisaB for such a great recipe!!

I loved the use of rice vinegar and lime juice in this marinade for the tofu! The flavors really worked nicely together, and I thought it made the taste bright and full of flavor. I really only used the tofu and marinade part of the recipe, not having made the noodles and succeeding sauce, but I would definitely recommend the tofu as is with the marinade. After marinating it, I baked the tofu at 350* in my toaster oven for about 20-25 mnutes. Thanks again for a great recipe!

This was delicious! The sauce is outstanding, and the best part. I grilled the tofu on the grill outside, and slid it into the warmed sauce and fettuccine with snow peas before it hit the table. Thanks for posting this!
