How to make two dishes at the same time.



Step 1

Carve Tofu

The main ingredients are 0.5 lb of ground pork and about 16 fried tofu.

Carefully carve out the center of the tofu, not going all the way through to the other side. It is a bit time consuming. Keep the carved out tofu center in the bowl to use later on. I made 16 tofu pockets for serving 2 people, set them to the side.

Combine chopped tofu and pork by simply mixing them a little bit.

Spice the tofu mixture

To spice the tofu mixture, add:
- 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce (
- 1 teaspoon of light soy sauce (
- 1 teaspoon of sesame oil (
- 1/4 tsp. of salt. Do not want to add too much, because oyster sauce is already salty itself.

Stir them making sure to stir in one direction. Add some water and continue stirring until the meat and tofu sort of stick together.

Stuff Tofu

Gently press the meat mixture into the center of the tofu. Repeat until all tofu pockets are filled.
For some leftover fillings, set them aside for the second dish.

Transfer the stuffed tofu into a steamer and steam for 15 minutes on high heat.

2nd Dish!

Move to the other stove, add a tablespoon of oil and a big spoon of chili bean paste to stir-fry on low heat. When you stir fry chili bean paste, you need to be careful of the heat. If the heat is too high, the bean paste is very easy to burn.

Only stir about 30 seconds, then add all leftover meat. Turn up the heat to medium-high to cook the meat thoroughly.
Next, add some cooking wine, about 1 tbsp. Do not add any salt, because the bean paste is already salty. Keep stirring until there’s no raw meat left, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
Then turn off the heat and spread a small handful of green onion.

One has a light taste, the other one is spicy and super flavorful. I think you should eat them together, they’re like peanut butter and jelly, they work well together.
