  • 500 gr egg tofu
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 200 gr minced pork/ground pork or ground meat of your choice
  • 1 cup chicken stock


  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger


To thicken the sauce:


  • 1 stalk green onion finely chopped


Things to prepare:

  • Cut the egg tofu into about 1-inch slices. Mix the corn starch with water to thicken the sauce later

Pan fry the egg tofu:

  • Preheat a large pan or skillet with cooking oil over medium heat. When it's hot, add the tofu slices and pan fry until they are golden brown on both sides. You can see a thin crust form on the surface of the tofu. Remove from the heat and arrange on a serving platter


  • In the same pan or skillet, add aromatics and stir fry for about 30 seconds. Add the pork and stir fry until the pork just started to turn opaque. If you want to add vegetables like broccoli or carrots, add them here. Add the chicken stock and bring to a gentle simmer and then cover with a lid briefly to cook the vegetables untilt they are soft, but not mushy. Add the seasonings and stir to mix everything for about 30 seconds.

Thicken the sauce:

  • Once it boils, gives the corn starch slurry a stir and pour into the pan or skillet. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens. Have a final taste and add more soy sauce and/or sugar if needed. It should be savory in taste
  • Remove from the heat and pour the meat sauce over the pan-fried egg tofu. Garnish with chopped green onion and serve immediately
