|Teriyaki Tofu Steaks|
In the end though, I decided on something basic and staple as I noticed that I needed to use up some Tofu that I had bought. These are firm tofu which is very good for turning into Tofu steaks. I had also bought some Mirin recently so I figured that it would be best to make a Teriyaki Tofu Steaks.
The Tofu is dusted with some corn flour and pan fried before adding in the Teriyaki sauce. Making your own Teriyaki sauce is amazing and tastes much better than store bought ones. For one, its not as sweet! Then again, I may be biased, but why not get a bottle of Mirin and try it for yourself. I will be delighted to hear your views.
