Tofu steaks

    50 mins

    This is one thing that vegetarians use to eat at barbies before haloumi got so popular. It's simple and tasty. You can cook these in a frypan too. Make sure you get the firm tofu.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 small block (250g) plain firm tofu
    • 1/4 cup (50ml) soya sauce
    • 1 tsp (5ml) sesame oil
    • ½ chilli, seeded and finely chopped (or use chilli paste)
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 1cm fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped

    Prep:40min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Slice the tofu into even sized slices across the block-you should get 6. Drain the slices on paper towels for 5-10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, mix all the rest of the ingredients together and marinate the tofu slices in this for 30 minutes - or however long you have.
    3. Cook on the barbecue plate on a medium heat, spooning the marinade over the tofu steaks when you turn them, for 3-5 minutes each side.

    will be making this again and again  -  10 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    As is so often the case when I make tofu, the taste was nice but the texture really let it down. I'd use the marinade in other meals, but one solid slice of tofu is just too much for me to handle!  -  05 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I wish I put less soy sauce: the steaks were too salty, now I'm dying of thirst ...  -  14 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
