Tofu with 5-spice Pork Recipe

Tofu with 5-spice pork

This is a family style Chinese dish.  There are a few restaurants who will serve something similar.  It maybe named Shredded Pork with Dry Bean Curd or Pressed Pork with Tofu.  Either way, the dish is made with ground or shredded pork and dry baked or marinated tofu.  You can find the tofu at some supermarkets and it will be labeled “Baked Tofu”.  Sometimes it will be seasoned with Five Spice or other flavors.  Do not use Teriyaki flavored tofu.
