After making the Instant Pot Meatless Loaf there was about half a box of firm tofu left over. I had already drained it, didn't want to re-wet it and store it, so I decided to pan sear/fry it.
Son number four had just made some bacon in the large cast iron skillet and had left a tiny amount of greasiness in the bottom of the pan. I started heating that up over medium heat.
The chunk of tofu was easily sliced into quarter-inch "steaks". I got out a plate and dumped on about 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch then added almost 1 teaspoon of Montreal Steak Seasoning. I mixed them together well then dredged each side of the tofu in the cornstarch mixture then placed the slices carefully in the heated pan. I let them sear/cook for about 5 minutes per side then removed them to a plate.
We ate them with some Sweet Chili Sauce from the Asian market. The pan frying/searing made a nice chewy crust on both sides and a little bit of softness in the middle. We had this as an adjunct to the failed Meatless Loaf dinner. These also were not popular. Well, again, I liked this and will eat slices on a sandwich during the next week.
