Chinese Style Sauteed Firm Tofu Chinese Style Sauteed Firm Tofu

I put the heavy baking pan above the tofu for 2 hours, lots of water came out, that definitely helped tofu develop a firmer texture. I didn't use onion, instead used the scallions, also added some oyster sauce. Very tasty and easy to make.
