How to Cook Home Style Tofu

Home Style Tofu

Home style tofu is a salty and slightly spicy taste of Sichuan cuisine. Though it needs many ingredients to give it a good flavor, it is simple to cook. Here is one of the recipes for it.

Ingredients and Seasonings

Main ingredients: 3 squares of dry tofu (about 250g) and 100g lean pork

Seasonings: 1 green pepper, 5 red chilies, 5g salt, 5g ginger, 5g garlic, 5 green onions, 10g light soy sauce, 30g cooking oil

(The amount of the seasonings listed above can be adjusted according to personal taste.)

Home Style Tofu


1. Clean and slice the tofu. Cut the tofu diagonally to create triangular tofu slices.

2. Clean and slice the lean pork. Marinate it for about 10 minutes in a marinade made from the light soy sauce, cooking oil, and water.

3. Clean and cut the red chilies, ginger, garlic, and green onion into pieces.

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat the cooking oil a wok over a high heat, then add the tofu slices, and fry both sides until they become golden. Remove them to a plate.

2. Leaving the oil in the wok, add the sliced ginger and garlic, and fry them to release their fragrance.

3. Add the pork and stir-fry until it is 80% cooked.

4. Re-add the fried tofu pieces, and add the salt, red chilies, and water. Cook them for about 2 minutes.

5. Add the chopped green onions and stir fry to finish.

6. Serve it on a plate.
