    Tyson Hurt's Note:

    I came up with this recipe as a result of becoming vegan, and no longer being able to eat mirin chicken with my Japanese friends. The glaze takes on a dark brown color, and coats the fried tofu very nicely. You may want to make extra sauce to serve over rice.

      Quick and easy and delicious, too. The sauce really is good, so I see why some comments suggest doubling the sauce and maybe even adding a few veggies. Thanks so much for sharing this!

      I love mirin, but this recipe doesn't do enough with it to make it really good. The only tofu I had was extra firm silken, which doesn't hold together very well in the fry pan. But on the bright side I kept looking for mirin tofu recipes until I found a really quick and delicious one with steamed vegetables, brown rice and homemade peanut sauce to top off the mirin-fried tofu.

      Excellent! This was my first attempt at making my own marinade, and it was wonderful. I doubled the sauce (for pouring over rice/veggies) and used frozen (and then thawed) tofu that I squeezed all the water out of. I also added some crushed red pepper flakes in addition to some toasted sesame seeds. Turned out very well. Thanks!
