    SAHS's Note:

    Derived from LinMarie's "Bourbon Chicken" recipe, this tofu, fried, cooked in sauce and served over rice, won't disappoint; at the moment its my favorite tofu recipe.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    4 oz. s ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drain the tofu, and then remove excess moisture by cutting it in half lengthwise and microwaving on high, uncovered, for two minutes. Gently squeeze out and wipe off excess moisture, then throw tofu in the freezer for one or two hours before removing to thaw in the fridge -- this will give the tofu a slightly heavier texture.
    2. 2
      Cut tofu into bite-sized pieces. Combine garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, apple juice, brown sugar, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Pour half of the mixture over the tofu and reserve the other half for later. Marinade tofu for at least 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drain any excess marinade from tofu (into your reserve marinade for later). Coat tofu pieces in flour. Heat oil over medium heat in a large frying pan and fry tofu until golden brown on all sides. (Add more oil as needed, but cook it all out before proceeding).
    4. 4
      Add reserved marinade to pan, bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over rice.

      Love it!! I doubled the sauce because we like a lot of sauce. Added chopped broccoli and carrots. I actually marinated mine for a couple of days, just because I wasn't able to make it the actual day I had planned and it marinated for 3 days. But it was great and had alot of flavor.

      Fantastic dish! I don't like overly firm tofu so I used a 'regular' firm and skipped the freezer step (plus I was hungry and didn't want to wait!). I used fresh ginger instead of ground, and scaled back the soy sauce a bit. I shouldn't have tinkered with the soy though, because it obviously cuts down the sweetness. But even with that change, it was a delicious easy to prepare dish that I would definitely serve to company, maybe with some wilted greens or broccoli on the side.

      Just a little kick from the pepper, loved it.
      I added 2 cups of brocoli while it simmered.
      Tasty and easy!
