Simple Dinner


Just a Mapo Tofu, Wafu Diced Steak with steamed rice. The Mapo Tofu doesn't look appetising but it's actually pretty good. It's a quick meal for us esp the Mapo Tofu using Lee Kum Kee's bottled paste. Don't get the paste that says Mapo Tofu (for some reason, it's got a really sour taste and makes the food taste off). Get the one that says Spicy Bean Chilli and under it in brackets it says Mapo Tofu. Like in the pic, once it's been sitting a while, the water starts coming out of the tofu. I normally use half of the small bottle paste.


As for the Wafu Beef, it's real easy to make.

Ingredients

3 pieces of Scotch Fillet Steak
1 large Zucchini (sliced)
2 large tbs butter
4 cloves garlic (chopped)
Mirin
Soy sauce
Sake/Korean Cooking Wine
2 sprigs of spring onion (sliced roughly)

Method

Mix sauces together.
Heat wok up and put in butter with garlic. Stir fry till fragrant. Add Zucchini. Toss occasionally while you cook the steak.
Then heat up skillet on high fire, add butter. When hot, cook steak for 1 min each side. Then remove from fire and slice into med-sized cubes.
Add beef and sauce to wok with zucchini, stir fry for a minute.
Ready to serve.

Sometimes the tastiest food might be just simple home cooking. No showing off fuss and especially on a cold winter's day at the end of a long day at work, you just want to veg out.
