Stir-Fry Tofu with Bean Sprouts Recipe
Jean-Pierre Gabriel

Ingredients

1 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 ounces extra firm tofu, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 cups bean sprouts
3 red spur chilies (or another red, hot pepper), diagonally sliced
2 scallions, sliced into 1 1/4 inch lengths
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat, add the tofu, and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the oil, then drain the rest from the wok. Increase the heat to medium-high and heat the reserved oil. Add the garlic and bean sprouts and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the chilies, scallions, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and tofu and stir-fry for another 1 minute. Serve.
