Tofu Sarciado is a low-fat Filipino dish involving tofu. Extra-firm tofu are fried until brown and then cooked in a sauce made from sauteed vegetables and egg. This dish is simple yet delicious.

Pork Adobo with Tofu is an adobo recipe version that I really like. It has the good taste of our favorite Pork Adobo along with the chewy texture of tofu. Pork and Tofu in Oyster Sauce has a similar texture, but tastes different.
Seasoned Tofu are fried tofu served in a mixture of Asian seasoning.This is a good appetizer, and even a meal by itself.
Tofu is a good source of protein. This is often used as a substitute for meat. If you have a high level of cholesterol and want to abstain from meat, this recipe is perfect for you.
Tofu is often associated to the popular Filipino food called Tokwa’t Baboy. This is composed of cubed fried tofu with boiled pig ears. Seasoned tofu is almost similar to this less the fat. I have nothing against Tokwa’t Baboy. In fact, I love having it all the time. However, there are times when one needs to abstain from fatty foods due to health concerns. Consider this recipe as an alternative.
Pork and Tofu in Oyster Sauce is a simple dinner recipe composed of pork loin and fried tofu. There is a lot of wonderful flavor going-on with this dish, and it has a nice texture too.
The taste of this dish is quite similar to that of Pork Adobo, but the sauce is more flavorful. If you haven’t tried this dish before, now is the time for you to do so.
The tofu that I used in this recipe is the extra firm tofu that we usually use for Tokwa’t Baboy. I prefer using extra firm tofu because it does not break easily when fried; it can also be fried until the texture becomes crispy. As for the pork, you may use whatever lean part you have there. If you love pork fats, that is fine. Go ahead and use that pork belly in the freezer, but don’t forget to thaw it first.
This recipe will make a perfect main dish; it is also a good “pulutan”. Time to take out a bottle of San Miguel Beer or Stella Artois from the cooler and enjoy!
