Soya Sauce Beancurd with a hint of protein


The funny thing about oriental stores in Perth is that many frozen items are sold in bulk. You don't just get a handful of fresh tou pok (fried bean curd), you get a HUGE packet of frozen ones. Well, one has to have fried beancurd for meesiam and laksa so in to the basket it went. However, we can't finish that packet in a week and about 3-4weeks later......it's still in the freezer.

That is when I have an "issue".

Do you have find that you are left with bits and pieces in your freezer but nothing sufficient for a meal?

I had a small packet of mince, 2 chicken sausages, some green chillis and a HUGE packet of fried bean curd. hmmm...

I have to find a way to combine them together to form a meal.

When in doubt, Daphne heads backs to her Chinese roots.

Stewing the fried bean curd allows the soya to infuse their flavors in it. Chicken sausage and mince meat provided with abit of a bite. And chilli. Of course chilli goes well with ANYTHING.

Jokes aside, this dish is like a variation of soya sauce chicken except the focus is on fried beancurd! LOL I did enjoy this with a bowl of rice though. Very satisfying. ;p

Do share with me what do you do with your "bits and pieces" in your freezer!

Yes, I love one dish meals like these with just a plain bowl of rice. Yum, with all the gravy. The other thing I did recently with bits and pieces was that I made it into a stew. I guess you could fry rice or noodles too, but not so with tau pok. Haha. Or maybe you could stuff the tau pok with the mince, deep fry them, then prepare a sauce to be poured over it? Not sure, just anyhow hantam. LOL.

That looks delicious! :) It's so simple to cook. Though I got to exchange the pork mince with beef mince :)

By the way Daph, can we exchange links? :)
