This is good. Serve with ramen noodles or over brown rice. Either fry the tofu yourself or buy pre-fried tofu.

- In a small bowl, stir together the sherry, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, vegetable stock and corn starch. Add to the hot pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
I baked the tofu instead of frying it - great flavors! The sauce has a really good balance to it. Could easily put your own favorite veggies in.
This recipe has a great balance of flavors between the sweet and sour. The vegetables were crisp and fresh tasting. I pressed tofu for 30 minutes and marinated it a mixture just like the the sauce, sans cornstarch. Absolutely delicious and perfectly fried! I served this dish over over white basmati rice and sprinkled it with soy sauce.
