Tips!
Cooking tofu like a steak will give it a chewier texture. Unlike meat, it's low in calories so you don't have to worry about high calorie intake even when you pair it with alcohol.
Tofu Steak with Mushroom Sauce
Imagine this: tofu coated in katakuriko potato starch flour, grilled to a crisp and drizzled with mushroom sauce. Mm-mmm. Tofu steak is high in protein and low in calories, which makes it a perfect for the health-conscious. It is also filling, which why we recommend it served as a main dish.

  • Choose chilled firm tofu for this recipe. Room-temperature tofu in an airtight pack is too soft for steak.
  • You can also use tempeh (fermented soy food in Indonesia) or atsuage (thick, deep-fried tofu) instead of firm tofu.
  • You can subtitute potato starch with cornstarch.
