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.
gills removed, chopped
chili garlic sauce
mushroom or vegetable
soy sauce, sodium reduced
1 package, firm, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 can, rinsed and coarsely chopped
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.
