Steak! Steak! It's Garlic Tofu Steak!!

Are you expecting some beef steak to this blog? Duh! I'm only posting some easy and LIGHT TO THE BUDGET menus here! Sometimes, it's hard when it comes on budgeting--and tofu is my kind of cook.My family loves tofu and aside from that, it is also healthy.Here's the recipe--

Ingredients: ( good for 4 persons )

tofu ( bean curd )- 2 cakes

garlic - 2 cloves, small

bacon - 4 pcs

boiled asparagus - 3 pcs ( thawed, if frozen )

salt and ground black pepper - small amount

olive oil, flour

sake - 2 tablespoon ( if you don't have sake, use white wine )

soysauce - 2 tablespoon


1: drain tofu, wrapped in dish towel ( paper towel ), press something heavy to squeeze out excess water for 15 - 20 minutes

2: cut tofu into 4 equal pieces in every cake, sprinkle salt and ground black pepper

3: dust tofu with flour

4: slice garlic, bacon and boiled asparagus into pieces

5: heat olive oil in a skillet, put on dusted tofu and stir fry for 3 minutes over medium heat, turn over. set aside when done

6: clean skillet with paper towel, put olive oil and garlic, start heat at low, then add bacon, stir fry for a while, then add boiled asparagus, stir fry for 2 minutes

7: add sake, soysauce, simmer for 2 minutes

8: arrange cooked tofu into the platter then put over sauce on top. sprinkle some ground black pepper ( for those who have kids--small amount only, please )

See, it's easy and healthy, too!! Enjoy your meal! :)
