    Very good! Totally forgot the garlic, but was still wonderful.

    I used unpressed firm tofu and it didn’t hold up as well. I wouldn’t use extra firm, because the dish of my childhood used a silkier tofu. Next time I will not be lazy and press the tofu first. I may even dredge it before frying too. Otherwise, authentic flavors and easy to make.

    Delicious! I added a couple things to the sauce like lemon juice, sesame seeds, and oyster sauce. I also put a miso boullion count in my rice for the side. Perfect.

    Really tasty. I used a different air fryer recipe for the tofu and added the tofu at the end of the recipe because I have stopped cooking with oil. Of course, I omitted all the oil from the recipe, too. I also used a vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce instead of fish sauce. I used a vegetarian Not- Chicken bouillon. Really my tweaks were just for health/belief reasons. I think much of the essence of the recipe remained. Served over brown rice. We are putting our tweaked recipe into regular rotation because we loved it!

    It is just like my mom’s recipee. Can add oyster sauce as well for richer taste

    It was delicious! My 16 months old baby loved it surprisingly. I didn't think she would like tofu. She clapped her hands after the first bite! :) that's how I know she's satisfied.

    Would substitute chicken stock with vegetable stock for vegetarians, most people who use tofu are either vegan or non=meat eaters
