As we all know that tofu is the best substitute for meat so let me share this recipe i found.

1         12- to 16-ounce package light, reduced-fat, or regular extra-firm tub-style tofu (fresh bean curd), drained
3      tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce or soy sauce
2      cups fresh snow pea pods (8 ounces)
1/4      cup yellow cornmeal
1/8      teaspoon ground red pepper
2      teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1      medium red sweet pepper, cut into thin strips
1      medium yellow sweet pepper, cut into thin strips
8      green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
2      teaspoons cooking oil
1      tablespoon white or black sesame seed, toasted (optional)

1. Cut tofu crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices in a single layer in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Pour 2 tablespoons of the teriyaki sauce over tofu; turn slices to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

2. Remove strings and tips from pea pods; cut in half. Set pea pods aside. In a shallow dish combine cornmeal and ground red pepper. Drain tofu, discarding marinade. Carefully dip tofu slices in cornmeal mixture; press gently to coat both sides. Set tofu slices aside.

3. Pour 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil into a large nonstick skillet. Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry sweet pepper strips for 2 minutes. Add pea pods and green onions; stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes more or until crisp-tender.

4. Remove skillet from heat; stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce. Transfer vegetable mixture to a serving platter; cover and keep warm. Wipe skillet clean.

5. In the same skillet heat the remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil and the cooking oil over medium heat. Cook the coated tofu slices for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes on each side or until crisp and golden brown, using a spatula to turn carefully. Serve tofu slices over vegetable mixture. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seed. Makes 4 servings.

"As we all know that tofu is the best substitute for meat"

Says who?  I don't know that to be true - in fact, I deny that it is true and state unequivocably that tofu is an inadequate substitute for meat.

Love this Asian Steam Cup Cake

You can steam the cake using a dim sum bamboo steamer. Line it well with baking paper. Recipe will make about 4 cakes depending on the size of the steamer.

Ingredients :

300 g plain flour (sifted)
300 g caster sugar
5 eggs
250 cc soda water
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
vanilla

Directions :

Mix eggs and sugar until thick and creamy,
Fold flour into the mixture well.
Slowly mix soda water and vanilla into the mixture.
Separate 2 cups of the mixture into another bowl. Add cocoa powder to this separate mixture and mix well.
Fill 5/6 of the steamer with the plain mixture and then top it up with the chocolate mixture.

Steam the mixture for about 20-30 minutes or until cooked. Refrain from opening the steamer while cooking.

You can change the flavour by using pandan flavouring instead of cocoa powder.

Enjoy  Smiley

Glad you could make it to the board.  Thanx for the recipe.

Do I assume correctly that since your recipe "will make about 4 cakes depending on the size of the steamer"  and yuou fill the steamer all the way to make a cake, that :

1.  You have to cook the four cakes seprately, one after another?  If so, how long tdo you let the cooked cake cool before removing from steamer?

and

2.  These are not "cup cakes" as we normally think of cupcakes, but actually full sized cakes?

What recipe is this? Or is this a dipping sauce? May I know what is a sake?

Korean Sesame Grilled Beef with Asian Pear Dipping Sauce


Ingredients:

For the beef and marinade:
* 2 pounds beef tenderloin tips, or boneless sirloin
* cup soy sauce
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 3 tablespoons sake, rice wine, or sherry
* 2 tablespoons Asian (dark) sesame oil
* 8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
* 4 scallions, both white and green parts, trimmed and minced
* 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
* teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 head romaine lettuce, separated into leaves, rinsed, and spun dry
Asian Pear Dipping Sauce (Makes about 2 1/2 cups):
* cup soy sauce


How to make
Korean Sesame Grilled Beef with Asian Pear Dipping Sauce

1. If using tenderloin tips, butterfly them to obtain broad flat pieces of meat; each should be about 4 inches long and wide and inch thick. If using the sirloin, cut it across the grain into -inch slices. Whichever cut you use, pound the slices between two sheets of plastic wrap with the side of a cleaver or with a rolling pin to flatten them to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Place the meat in a large non-reactive baking dish and set aside while you prepare the marinade.

2. Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the mixture over the meat in the baking dish and toss thoroughly to coat. Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for 1 to 2 hours.

3. Preheat the grill to high.

4. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the pieces of meat on the grate and grill, turning with tongs, until nicely browned on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the meat to a platter when it is done.

5. Pour the dipping sauce into 6 small bowls, one for each diner. To eat, take a piece of meat and wrap in a lettuce leaf. Dip the leaf in the dipping sauce and eat at once.

Asian Pear Dipping Sauce and Serving Instructions:

Combine all the ingredients in a medium-size bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed and the sugar is dissolved. Divide the sauce among as many small bowls as there are people, so each person has his own for dipping, and serve immediately.

enjoy!! Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
