Tofu and minced meat (Japanese style mapo tofu)


This time, I will introduce side dishes using tofu and minced meat. I have made a Japanese-style mapo tofu, a famous Chinese food, so that even children can eat it.


300 g Tofu
100 g minced meat.
(Any kinds of meat is okay. I use pork.)
1 tbsp. Grated garlic
1 tbsp. Grated ginger
1 tbsp. Sesame oil
1/3 Leek
*1 tbsp. Miso
*1/2 tbsp. Soy sauce
*1 tbsp Sake
*3 g chicken stock
*2 tbsp Potato starch
*300 cc water


Step 1
Mix well Miso, soy sauce, Sake, chicken stock, potato starch and water. (Marked *)

Step 2
Cut tofu to 1cm dice size.

Step 3
Chop leeks.

Step 4
Heat frying pan and put sesame oil, garlic and ginger.

Step 5
Put minced meat and fry well.

Step 6
After meat turned to white, put leeks.

Step 7
Put pre-made sauce
When it thickens, put it on low heat for another 2 minutes.

Step 8
Add tofu and mix gently.



It’s delicious to eat as it is, but it’s also delicious to eat on rice.

I always procure many ingredients from Ocado.
Many Japanese use it.
You can get a lot of Japanese ingredients.

And I also recommend Japan Centre.
You can get not only Japanese ingredients but also miscellaneous goods and books.

When you leave the UK on your way home or on a business trip, you must take a test before you travel.

Depending on the country, there may be conditions for entry.
Please be sure to check the homepage of the embassy.
