mabo dofu (spicy ground pork with tofu)

1 tbsp. dark miso
2 tbsp. mirin
1 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 tsp. tobanjan
1 tsp. gochujang
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. corn starch
1/4 cup water
1 - 1/2 tsp. chinese chicken stock
1/2 tsp. sugar
mix the above ingredients together in a small bowl.

2 tbsp. sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tbsp. ginger (minced)
1 pound ground pork
14oz package silken tofu cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 scallions sliced thin

add the 2 tbsp. of sesame oil in a wok, or hot saute pan and fry the garlic and ginger until fragrant.
add the ground meat and break it up with a wooden spoon. when the meat is cooked, drain off any excess oil and add the sauce mixture.
stir the mixed ingredients into the pork, then add the tofu. If the sauce seems thick (or non-existent), add some water and cook until the tofu is heated through. if you’re using silken tofu, be careful not to mash up the tofu too much.
stir in the scallions just before taking it off the heat and serve with white rice, and garnish with chopped scallions.

enjoy :)
