Soft Beancurd Top With Minced Meat



 Beancurd has always been one of my family's favourite.  Today I prepared a dish of  beancurd topped with minced meat. 

Recipe:

Ingredients:
1 box beancurd (any brand)
100 g minced meat
1 shallots (sliced) 
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1/2 cup water
pepper
a pinch of sugar to taste
cornstarch water (for thickening the sauce)

Garnishing:
spring onion, coriander leaves

Method:
1) Remove beancurd from the box,  Slice them into pieces and arrange them onto a plate.
2)  Steam the sliced toufu (beancurd) for 3 minutes. Using a tablespoon to scoop away the water on the surface after steaming.
3. Heat up oil (about a tablespoonful) in a wok, stir-fry  shallots until fragrant, add in minced meat and stir-fry until meat is cooked. Add in oyster sauce, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, water and sugar, allow to simmer for few minutes.  Thicken the sauce with cornstarch water.
4)  Pour the minced meat over the steamed toufu, garnish and serve.
