WOW! I made this tonight because I had a craving for Thai food and didn't want to go out. The sauce is delish and the tofu was light and delicate and wonderful. I made extra sauce to use in Chicken Satay w/noddles later this week. Thanks for sharing!

I marinaded the tofu in the sauce (minus the peanut butter) overnight before coating in flour (not cornstarch), frying, and then pouring another batch of sauce over it before serving. Too spicy for my liking, but very good all the same. Will make again.

I can't believe it took me this long (and so many failed attempts) to learn the secret behind cooking crispy tofu. Thank you. I made a different sauce (combo of peanut butter, a little hot water, soy sauce, brown sugar and grated ginger), so I can't comment on the sauce, but the tofu turned out great. I used medium-firm as that's all I had on hand, and was worried it would fall apart, but it didn't.

I made the peanut sauce. It was good, easy, super quick and I had all the ingred. on hand. I'd make this again but I'm still on my quest for the best sauce ever. Thanks for posting.

I pressed the tofu to remove extra liquid, then marinated it for a couple of days in this: Asian Style Savory Baked Tofu. Then I followed this recipe. The tofu could have been crispier, but that was probably a failure of technique (I don't think my oil was hot enough, and half the tofu sat on the plate waiting to be cooked, so the cornstarch got soggy). The sauce was quite tasty, though.

I simplified the recipe; cooked the coated tofu in toasted sesame oil and dipped in sweet & spicy chili sause with some hot mustard on the side. Very easy and delicious!

I love the texture of the tofu! The sauce was very rich, I also recommend using as a dipping sauce. Delicious! Thanks for posting :)

The sauce was peanut (which I like), but way too salty for my palate.

Awesome and easy! I kind of smothered the tofu in the sauce thought and it seemed there was a bit too much. I recommend the side dish for diipping like the pics!
