- 4Keep tofu block in tact until cooked. Simply boil or steam for about 5-7 minutes and then cut into 1/2-inch thick square pieces.
- 5Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick skillet, carefully add the tofu pieces and sear over medium heat until golden brown, 5 minutes each side.
- 6Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by mixing remaining ingredients together in a large pot that will fit tofu pieces. Add the fried tofu pieces and braise them for about 10-15 minutes on high heat or until most of the sauce has evaporated. Flip tofu pieces halfway to coat halfway during the braise.
- 7Plate tofu pieces and garnish with scallion strips and sesame seeds. If boiling or steaming the tofu, pour sauce mixture over cooked tofu pieces and then garnish. Enjoy.
