mabodofu マボ豆腐


One of my favorite dishes and also one I've mastered cooking. Very easy and so tasty!! I use the spicy mabodofu paste but I still add more chili to it coz I like it hot! A chinese recipe originally but I dont know what its called in chinese. Very popular among japanese people coz its easy to cook at home.

* saute chopped chili, ginger, leeks , garlic until aromatic.
* add ground meat ( pork is best but maybe you can try beef)
* saute until meat becomes brown then add chopped mushrooms ( shiitake )
chopped carrots and add 1 cup of water
* pour the mabodofu paste ( can be found at your local asian grocer )
* simmer for a few minutes, then lastly add tofu that is cut into squares ( bean curd), use the
firm kind
* cover and cook for 3~5 minutes. Dont stir too much!

I usually cook this when Im in a hurry or if Im a little lazy to make extravagant meal. Served with hot rice and some vegetables and you have a treat!!
