Fast and easy asian tofu dish which is great for after work. Have a vegetarian version by omitting the meat.

Tofu by itself is bland and does not have much taste. It needs to be complemented with other ingredients to bring up its flavour. This is my to-go recipe and is really very easy to prepare. This is the perfect dish to cook if you are looking for an easy yet delicious recipe. Moreover, steaming retains most of the nutrients of the tofu. I have cooked this countless times and has received much compliments for it. If you are a vegetarian, skip the meat and use mushroom sauce instead of oyster sauce.

  Ged├╝nsteter Tofu ist auch auf deutsch verf├╝gbar.

I added more mince meat because my son don't like mushrooms & a little too much dark soy sauce. But my son say it's yummy. Thank you :)
