Chinese Braised Mushrooms and Tofu

Chinese Braised Mushrooms and Tofu Chinese Braised Mushrooms and Tofu

Excellent, I made this recipe for dinner yesterday. I used the shiitake mushrooms, added more garlic and green chiles, and it was delicious.















1 tablespoon canola oil
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons ginger
freshly minced
4 mushrooms, portabello
gills removed, chopped
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
1 ¼ cups stock
mushroom or vegetable
2 tablespoons sherry
2 tablespoons soy sauce, sodium reduced
2 teaspoons brown sugar
14 ounces tofu
1 package, firm, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
8 ounces water chestnuts
1 can, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon water
1 ½ teaspoon cornstarch


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add mushrooms and chile-garlic sauce and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the mushroom liquid has evaporated, 4 to 6 minutes. Add broth, sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, tofu and water chestnuts and bring to a simmer.

Cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat as necessary to maintain a simmer, for 10 minutes to blend flavors.

Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir the mixture into the saucepan and simmer until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.
