Mashed SilkenTau fu/Beancurd ~ 粉碎豆腐



Protein rich Silken Tau Fu/Beancurd by itself is bland in taste and therefore it needs to be cooked with some meat or seafood with some sauces added to it to make the dish tasty.  Tau fu with minced pork is a home-cooked dish that's very commonly found in a Chinese house-hold.  This is also a very quickie and easy way to cook tau fu to serve on the dining table in a relatively short time.
