Creating my Spicy Asian Tofu using ingredients best found at an Asian grocery store. Tasty pan fried tofu spiced and sauced for great flavor.
Press the paper towel wrapped tofu for 30 minutes to get out as much water as possible. Then, cut into 1" cubes and place in a bowl. Cover with the potato starch and mix well. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Set aside. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in the wok. Add the tofu cooking in batches and fry 3 - 4 minutes being sure to cook all sides. Remove from the wok and place on a plate lined with a paper towel.
Add in the remaining oil, with the garlic, red onion and 2/3 of the green onions. Sauté for 2 minutes. Next, add in the mirin and cook for 2 minutes burning off some of the alcohol. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients. Mix well and cook for 2 minutes. Add in the tofu and cover with the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes. Add in the remaining green onions. Cook for 1 more minute. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
