Recipe

Sweet and Sour Tofu
Ingredients
1 block firm tofu, pressed in a towel for 15 minutes and cut into desired shape- triangles, squares, etc.
Cornstarch
Canola or Peanut Oil for frying

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
1 small can pineapple juice (or juice from a 15-1/4 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (or less)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

(You will have lots of extra sauce- you can half the recipe if desired)

Directions
Take pressed tofu and dust with cornstarch. Heat oil over high heat on stove (or use deep fryer). Fry tofu in batches. (too many and the heat will lower excessively, resulting in greasy tofu.) Let drain on rack or on plate with a paper towel. Reserve, keeping warm in oven on low or covering with aluminum foil etc.

Make Sweet and Sour Sauce:
Combine ingredients and place in pan over medium heat, whisking until thickened. OR Microwave for 4 minutes or so, stirring after ever minute.

Serve with rice and vegetable dish of your choice. You can mix the tofu into the sauce or serve it on the side. Very yummy!

Notes
DH loved this, and said sweet and sour sauce was his “favorite.” I liked it too. It’s not “authentic” Chinese food, but it’s tasty!
