Braised Five Layers Pork with Extra Firm Tofu
I made the above to bring to a friend's potluck gathering. I took a chance and bought the Five Layers Pork to make this. Honestly, it was the best thing to do as the fat would melt-in-your-mouth and blended so well with the meat and oh so good. Yes, I know it was sinful but I never buy this for our own family consumption so this was just an indulgent once in a blue moon. I actually threw away some extra fat while slicing the meat which I kind of regretted because the other party really liked it. Oops!
I used the extra firm tofu to braise with the sauce and it turned out so well marinated as the flavor of the sauce all went into the tofu. Since I simmered the tofu in the sauce, it turned soft and oh so flavorful.
The recipe of this braised dish can be found here. I had made this numerous times and it was all good. I started to miss this dish already.
