Stuffed Tofu Clay Pot Instructions

To prepare the tofu:
  • Cut the firm tofu into 8 equal pieces.
  • Sprinkle the salt over the tofu. (Salt seasons the tofu and makes them more durable.) Rest for 5 minutes.
  • Use a small spoon to scoop out the center of each piece of tofu. Reserve the scooped-out tofu for the filling.
To make the filling:
  • In a mixing bowl, add the ground pork, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and water (the water makes the pork soft and juicy.) Mix well.
  • Also add the reserved tofu, carrots, and scallions. Thoroughly combined.
To assemble the tofu:
  • Place the filling in the center of each piece of tofu.
To pan-fry the tofu:
  • On a plate, add the cornstarch. Dip the stuffed tofu in the cornstarch, both the top and bottom.
  • In a pan over medium heat, pour the avocado oil inside. Carefully place the stuffed tofu in the pan. Pan-fry them until golden brown on both the top and bottom for about 5 minutes in total. Remove the stuffed tofu and drain.
To braise the stuffed tofu and serve:
  • In a bowl, mix in the chicken stock (or replace with water), soy sauce, oyster sauce, and cornstarch. Whisk.
  • In a clay pot over medium heat (or any regular pots), add the oil and garlic. Stir-fry until aromatic for about 20 seconds. Pour the chicken stock and seasonings inside.
  • Add the cabbage, enoki mushrooms, and stuffed tofu. Cover the lid and braise over medium heat until completely cooked through for about 6 minutes.
  • Uncover and garnish with scallions. Enjoy!
