This was delicious. I've learned to love tofu and wanted to try cooking it at home. The recipe is very easy, but I made the mistake of not using nonstick. I didn't have a big nonstick pan so I figured I'd just add more oil. I was so wrong. These things stuck to the pan like they were glued. Luckily I'd only done half of the tofu. The other half I used a 10 inch omlete pan (nonstick). Worked perfectly. So next time, (there will be a next time) I'll use nonstick from the beginning and just do batches. Also, the sauce was a little too ketchupy for me which is odd because I LOOOOOVE ketchup. I think it was the ketchup AND the vinegar. Regardless of my flaw and the ketchup, this will surely be a repeated recipe.

This was delicious. I added lots of hot peppers because that is the way we roll. I served it with a colorful veggie medley of shredded carrots and asparagus because it is in season. Everyone went back for seconds and I will definitely make this again. Does everyone know that the tofu must be thoroughly drained if you want it to get crispy? I spend a few hours before cooking, draining it on paper towels. I change the paper towels three or four times as they get soaked from the moisture that they wick away from the firm tofu. Wet tofu won't fry well but dry tofu will get nice and crispy.

This is the best tofu recipe I've tried so far! The whole family likes it! I doubled the sauce because the tofu I buy comes in a slightly bigger package and I just like to cook it all at once. I made it just for myself once and had leftovers for the next day, and I must say, it was even better the next day! This recipe is a keeper! I serve it over rice with stir fry veggies on the side. Love it! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Delicious! I Loved how quick and easy it was. I fried the tofu longer to get it nice and crispy, more like 5 mins. on each side. The sauce was perfect and adhered to the tofu perfectly. I served this on brown rice with a side of Asian slaw. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I'll be making it again.

This is delicious! Used sriracha instead of sweet chile sauce. We like spicy HOT, so will try this again tonight with more sriracha and or chile garlic sauce. Also pressed it for about 1/2 hour and it came out nice and crispy. Definitely a keeper! Thanks Chef!

The first time I made this my family loved the sauce but I wasn't loving the texture it wasn't crispy enough for me or my husband. So the second (and third) time I made this for my family I pressed it in my tofu xpress first for 30 minutes. It gave the texture I was looking for and now it has become a family favorite. Thanks for the recipe!

I've been trying to eat healthier and I admit, I'm not a tofu fan. And the first recipe I tried was well... awful. This recipe gave me hope. Even my husband enjoyed it. Definitely a keeper.

Fantastic! Buuuuut, I tweaked it a bit. I marinated it in the sauce for a couple of hours then rolled it in panko to fry it. I also freezed and then thawed the tofu first. IT WAS SOOO GOOD!!

Absolutely delish! I followed the recipe except for adding in some veggie chicken as well and doubling the sauce. Forgot to throw on the green onions, but it was really yummy! Thanks so much for sharing! :O)
