How To Cook Tofu On The Stove


4 servings


Main Course


45 minutes



Drain the tofu, and press it between two kitchen towels to remove excess liquid as much as possible.Cut the tofu into thick cubes about 2-3 inches, and toss in cornstarch until fully covered.

Heat up a large skillet (nonstick!) over medium-high heat with enough oil to fry this amount of tofu (about 2-3 tablespoons).

Season tofu with a little salt and black pepper. Pan fry for 2-3 minutes on all sides until browned slightly and crisp.

This is the longest part as you’ll have to carefully flip each tofu cube. (My best recommendation for this is to use chopsticks). Reduce the heat to low and stir in the sauce coating all the tofu.

Cook the tofu for 2 minutes gently coating with the sauce during this time. Serve with green onions, sesame seeds, and a bowl of rice or noodles.
