Chinese Style Brewed Tofu

1 md Firm tofu (carefully sliced into 1/2 inch cubes)
1/4 c Ground pork (or ground beef)
3 tb Vegetable oil
2 tb Soybean sauce
1/2 tb Granulated sugar
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 c Chopped green onion
1/2 tb Chopped garlic
1 1/2 c Water (or unsalted chicken broth) (optional)
Mixture of 1/2 ts cornstarch and 1Tb cold water

step 1. heat the oil on the fry pan. 2. add in ground pork, stir fry them until cooked (lightly brown) 3. scoop ground pork to one edge of the fry pan, and add chopped garlics 4. stir fry garlic and ground pork few times and then add soybean sauce, sugar, and salt to taste(I prefer not to add too much) 5. careful slide the tofu cubes into the fry pan. Tofu is fragile, so after they are set into the pan, DONíT stir fry them. If you really need to move them, PUSH them tenderly by the flat side of the spoon. 6. add water to boil to 10 min. (close the lid on and simmer, and I prefer a longer time to 20 minutes if I am not in a hurry) 7. now you can smell how good it is to cook with soybean sauce and sugar in chinese food, after the tofu cubes absorb the sauces and are done, spread over the mixture of cornstarch and cold water and heat up to boil again until the sauce becomes a little bit thick, 8. sprinkle the chopped green onion and ready to serve. Be careful to PUSH or scoop the tofu to the serving plate, you donít want to smash the tofu cubes and let the savory sauces come out of them.
