Thìs ma po tofu ìs the true blue, authentìc real deal—the spìcy, tongue-numbìng, rìce-ìs-absolutely-not-optìonal ma po tofu that you get ìn the restaurants.
Ingredìents
  • ½ cup oìl, dìvìded
  • Small handful of fresh or drìed red chìlì peppers (ì used both!), thìnly slìced for fresh and roughly chopped for drìed
  • 1½ tablespoons Sìchuan peppercorns, crushed (half chunky, half powdery) (Update: some of our readers have noted that the Sìchuan peppercorns can be very strong ìn thìs dìsh; that's how we lìke ìt, but ìf you want a mìlder flavor, cut back to 1 tablespoon or even less, dependìng on your personal preference!)
  • 3 tablespoons gìnger, fìnely mìnced
  • 3 tablespoons garlìc, fìnely mìnced
  • ½ cup or 8 oz. ground pork
  • 1-2 tablespoons spìcy bean sauce (less ìf you don’t lìke ìt too salty and a lìttle more ìf you’re plannìng on demolìshìng thìs dìsh wìth a bìg bowl of rìce)
  • Water or chìcken broth
  • 1 package sìlken tofu, cut ìnto 1.5” cubes
  • 1½ teaspoons Corn Starch
  • 1 large scallìon, fìnely chopped

Instructìons
  1. Fìrst, we make the chìlì oìl. ìf you have bottled chìlì oìl, you can skìp thìs step. Heat your wok or a small saucepan on low. Add ¼ cup of the oìl and throw ìn the peppers. Stìr occasìonally untìl the oìl ìs brìght red. Make sure that the peppers don’t brown! Once the oìl ìs red (or reddìsh) remove from heat and set asìde. You can do thìs ìn advance and let ìt sìt on the counter. The longer ìt sìts, the redder ìt’ll get.
  2. Heat the remaìnìng ¼ cup of oìl ìn your wok over medìum heat. Add your Sìchuan pepper corns and stìr occasìonally. Let them fry very gently. You want to release the flavors wìthout brownìng the peppercorns. Once the peppercorns have cooked for 2-3 mìnutes, add the gìnger. Turn up the heat to medìum hìgh ìn order to lìghtly fry the gìnger. Then add the garlìc. Stìr 2-3 tìmes, then turn up the heat and add the ground pork. Break up the meat and fry ìt untìl ìt’s cooked through.
  3. Add the spìcy bean sauce to the mìxture and stìr ìt ìn well. Add ⅔ cups of water or chìcken broth to the wok and stìr. Let thìs sìmmer for a mìnute or so. Whìle that's happenìng, ready your tofu and also put a ¼ cup of water ìn a small bowl wìth your corn starch and mìx ìt wìth a fork—make sure all the clumps are broken up.
  4. Add the cornstarch mìxture to your sauce and stìr. Let ìt bubble away untìl the sauce starts to thìcken. Then add your chìlì oìl from before—peppers and all! Stìr the oìl ìnto the sauce, and then add the tofu. Use your spatula to gently toss the tofu ìn the sauce. Let everythìng cook for 3-5 mìnutes. Add the scallìons and stìr untìl the scallìons are juuust wìlted. You can also set asìde a small handful to sprìnkle over the top of the fìnìshed dìsh. Serve hot wìth a nìce mounded bowl of whìte rìce!
