Tofu Steak

This recipe offers a deliciously different way to serve tofu, with a satisfying texture and flavour.


Serves: 1

  • 280g firm tofu (1 standard size block, strained)
  • 100g shimeji mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic, 5g butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sake


  1. Wrap the tofu in a tea towel and place something on top of it such as a small bowl to force out excess water, leave the bowl in position for about 15 minutes.
  2. Cut the drained tofu into 3 even pieces. Slice the garlic finely.
  3. Fry the garlic in the butter until browned, before removing it, and saute the shimeji mushrooms until soft and then remove them.
  4. Place the tofu in the pan and fry both sides on a medium heat. Put the garlic back in the pan and add the soy sauce and sake as finishing touch. Serve with the mushroom.
