      I wanted to update my review. I have found that if the tofu is cut too small they become hard which was my only issues last time I made this. Also, I like to add a little cornstarch to the sauce to help it thicken. I'll upload a photo but when I made it the other night I didn't have sesamee seeds. It is a great recipe tho and I'm glad I made it again. Origional Review: This was very good. I doubled the tofu and the sauce. I cooked the tofu then removed and set aside while I cooked some broccoli in the same pan. I mixed all the sauce ing. together and when the broccoli was done I added the tofu and the sauce and tossed until it was thickened and served with Jasimine rice. I used 1/2 tsp pepper flakes and I that was pleanty for us. The only thing I will change next time is how I do the tofu. I like to coat the tofu with beaten egg and then the cornstarch and then fry in veg. oil. Without the egg it was a little too crispy and kind of strange to us. I'll make it again with my changes. Thanks for posting.
