We literally use these Lee Kum Kee sauces all the time at home. They make cooking tasty food super quick and easy.
Here’s what you need to know about this recipe:
- Our 1 pack of tofu weighs roughly 400g (14.1oz), which is enough for two good-sized tofu ‘steaks’ per person.
- For best results, we recommend freezing the tofu and then defrosting it, which will give the tofu a spongy texture and help it to absorb as much flavour as possible.
- 400g / 14.1oz firm tofu, pressed and sliced into ‘steaks’
- 2 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Sauce
- 1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Premium Light Soy Sauce
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 lime, juice only
- 150g / 5.3oz jasmine rice, rinsed
- vegetable oil
- 1 pak choi, leaves separated and rinsed
- 1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Mushroom Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Lee Kum Kee Pure Black Sesame Oil
- 1 spring onion, chopped
- 1/2 red chilli, diced
- 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
- Combine the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, maple syrup, lime juice and a pinch of salt in a shallow dish. Add the tofu - coating it in the marinade - cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Cook the rice as per the packet instructions.
- Meanwhile, add 1 tsp of oil to a griddle pan on a medium heat. Cook the tofu in the pan for 6 mins on each side or until it’s nicely charred - brush the leftover marinade over the tofu as it cooks.
- Add 1 tsp of oil to a wok on a medium-high heat. Add the pak choi and vegetarian mushroom stir-fry sauce and fry for 2-3 mins. Then stir in the sesame oil and remove from the heat.
- To serve, add the rice to a plate, top with the pak choi and tofu steaks, then sprinkle over the spring onion, red chilli and sesame seeds.
