I just discovered a new way of enjoying a block of tofu!
Here's a recipe for bistek (usually made with thin slices of meat).
What you'll need:
1 500g block of tofu sliced thinly and fried in vegetable oil
1/2 cup of water
15 pcs of calamansi (kumquat) juiced and set aside
1 medium sized onion cut into rings kissed by oil
soy sauce to taste
sugar and pepper to taste
What to do:
In the pan where you fried the tofu, add the water, soy sauce, kumquat juice and simmer. After 3 minutes, add sugar and pepper. (I didn't use salt since soysauce has its own saltiness to it). Simmer for another minute then add the fried tofu stir until the tofu is covered with the sauce. Add the onions and simmer for 1 minute.
Serve with rice or just enjoy it as is.
