How to cook… Tofu with Minced Pork

After surviving the Vegetarian Festival in Thailand this year, I found myself starting to use tofu more in my cooking. This dish uses fried tofu with minced pork. In the ingredients below, you can see Chinese celery, spring onion, tofu in a package, fried tofu, garlic cloves and minced pork in the middle.

This is a simple dish to cook. Start with the tofu. Fry it first in oil until it turns golden brown. Then set it aside and let it drain. Next fry your crushed garlic in the pan until it turns fragrant. Add the minced pork. Next comes the Chinese celery and spring onion. You can also add mushroom if you like. Season with oyster sauce and pepper. Give it a good stir. Put the fried tofu on your serving dish and pour the minced pork mixture on top. Next week at www.thai-blogs.com I will share with you another Thai dish. Feel free to suggest food that you would like us to cook in the comments.
