You will definitely surprise yourself with this one. It is an extremely delicious dish that's quick and straightforward to make, but looks as if it's been prepared at a top Chinese restaurant.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Crush the Black Peppercorns (2 Tbsp) using a mortar and pestle or spiced grinder.
Step 2
Cut the Long Beans (1 bunch) into 1 inch pieces. Trim the ends off the Enoki Mushrooms (7 oz) and roughly chop the Oyster Mushrooms (7 oz) .
Step 3
Drain and cut the Extra Firm Tofu (12.5 oz) into 1 inch squares. Dice the Onion (1) . Mince the Garlic (6 cloves) and Fresh Ginger (1 1/2 Tbsp) . Thinly slice Red Chili Peppers (2) .
Step 4
Toss your tofu in the Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) and dust off any excess. This will give your tofu a really crunchy, defined layer when you fry it in the oil.
Step 5
In a medium sized pan over medium-high heat, add your Canola Oil (1/4 cup) and fry tofu until all of the sides are golden brown.
Step 6
Remove tofu from pan and place on paper towels.
Step 7
Using the leftover oil, saute the long beans, enoki and oyster mushrooms until they are cooked. Remove vegatables from pan and set aside.
Step 8
In the same pan, melt Butter (3 Tbsp) on low heat and saute your onion, garlic, chili and ginger on low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. By the end everything in the pan will be fragrant and golden brown, but not burnt.
Step 9
In a small bowl combine Dark Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp) , Tamari Soy Sauce (3 Tbsp) , Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp) , and crushed peppercorns.
Step 10
Toss tofu and vegetables in the sauce and heat everything up for 1-2 minutes. Serve over rice and garnish with some thinly sliced Fresh Chives (to taste) or green onions.
