Combine ground pork, tofu, and a spicy sauce and it will make a tofu-hater a believer--just ask my husband! Enjoy.

Ingredients
  • 1 (16 ounce) package firm tofu
  • 1 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons chile-garlic sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese black bean and garlic sauce
  • 8 ounces lean ground pork
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • 3 cups hot cooked short-grain rice
  • ground black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. 1. Cut tofu into 4 slices. Place tofu between 2 paper towels. Let stand until paper towels have absorbed much of the liquid, about 10 minutes. Drain and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. 2. Whisk chicken broth, chile-garlic sauce, soy sauce, cornstarch, and black bean sauce together in a bowl.
  3. 3. Heat a wok or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the broth mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer sauce until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  4. 4. Toss cubed tofu into the sauce; simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in green onions. Spoon ma po tofu over hot rice. Season with black pepper.
