Marinated Tofu Steaks

I have been taking too much time with seitan recently and have neglected tofu. To rectify the situation, I made some marinated tofu steaks. They turned out great!

Marinated Tofu Steaks

1 pound of extra firm tofu
1 cup of soy sauce
1/3 cup of sesame oil
1/3 cup of hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of garlic
1/2 teaspoon of chilly sauce
1/2 teaspoon of curry powder

Cut the tofu into lengthwise slices about 1/4 of an inch wide (about 10 slices in a block). The in a flat container or baking sheet combine all other ingredients. Mix well. Set the tofu steaks in the mixture and cover. Let sit for 8 hours. If you can flip the steaks around 4 hours into it that is great but it is not necessary. After the 8 hours, heat some sesame oil in a skillet on med-high heat until the oil is bubbling. Gently set the tofu steaks into the hot oil. Some times I like to add some more garlic and curry to the tofu while they are cooking. Flip the tofu after about 5 minutes and cook until each side it browned.

I was totally just thinking that I really should make more tofu, too. Thanks for the man food posts. The more manly the recipe is, the more likely my husband is to try it. He keeps saying I'm trying to turn him into Moby.
