Cut a firm block of tofu in 1/2” slices

Spoon out a pocket from the top of each tofu slice.

Marinate for 1 hour in any CHEF MYRON’S SAUCE of your choice.

Make stuffing mixture: Minced garlic, finely diced water chestnut and chopped peanuts. Stir-fry in 1 T. Peanut oil.

Add the cooked rice, minced cilantro, and a bit of crushed red pepper to taste.

Moisten with a sprinkle of CHEF MYRON’S SAUCE of your choice.

Mound a clump of stuffing into each tofu pocket, smooth to slightly round.

Dredge each slice in dry cornstarch until well coated.

Heat a skillet with 1/4” deep peanut or canola oil until almost smoking.

Carefully, with a slotted spatula, lower tofu slices into the oil, stuffed side down. Fry until golden brown. Turn gently, using a spatula to fry other side.

Drain on paper towels.

Drain oil from skillet, and add 1/4 C. CHEF MYRON’s YAKITORI SAUCE to still hot pan. Shake the pan while sauce boils to reduce and thicken sauce. Dribble reduction over stuffed tofu.

Garnish with chopped cilantro or scallion.
