Finally, I get to finish the tofu that I bought. I realized I kinda hoarded on tofu because it’s my favorite. But then, there’ll come a time that you’ll get tired of eating the same thing over and over. That’s what happened to me with Tofu. So I might not be posting any Tofu recipes for a month or two or three. Tofu Steak Tagalog, while super yummy, will be a good last tofu dish to eat before I take a break.
I love this Tofu Steak Tagalog. It’s like eating Bistek Tagalog but a healthy-alternative to it. It has the same taste! and with lots of onions on top, boy, every bite is just delightful!
Tofu Steak Tagalog
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/4 tbsp water
- 4 tsp calamansi
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 500 grams firm tofu sliced into 1/2-inch thick rectangles
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 pieces onion sliced into rings
- 5 cloves garlic minced
Mix all ingredients of the marinade.
Add tofu into the marinade and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
In a wok, heat oil over medium heat.
Add onions and saute until soft in texture. Set aside.
Remove tofu from the marinade.
In the same wok, add more oil then add drained tofu.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Set aside.
In the same wok again, using the remaining oil, add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
Pour in marinade and boil for 1 minute.
In a service plate, place tofu slices then pour cooked marinade over tofu.
Top with cooked onions. Serve and enjoy!
