1 Pound(s) Tofu, extra firm*
1/4 Cup(s) Oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Pale dry sherry
2 Ginger root slices, shredded
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Onion, large thinly sliced
Black pepper, fresh ground
3 Garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoon(s) Soy sauce
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cornstarch**
1 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
3 Tablespoon(s) Stock**

This dish originally used 1 lb. of flank steak which was cut against
the grain into thin slices and then marinated same as the tofu.
Sometimes I make it with steak or tofu or a mixture of both. In
addition, I occasionally add a small bok choy which is first blanched
and then cooled. If other vegetables are added, increase the
cornstarch mixture to three times what is listed. Recipe can be
doubled and comes out fine. **Mix the cornstarch with the soup stock
and have ready until needed. Get tofu ready according to your favorite
methods. I usually slice it lengthwise in half- inch blocks, put paper
towels over and under it, and press with telephone book to get out
excess water. Mix together the sherry, salt, pepper, soy sauce, sugar
and 1 1/2 tsp. of the oil in a shallow dish. Add the tofu or steak
shreds and leave to marinate for 15 minutes. in a wok or pan over
high heat. Add the ginger and onion and stir-fry for 1 1/2 minutes
(about). Remove onions, place in a colander, and let drain. You can
use the oil left in pan if it is enough. Heat wok again. When it is
very hot, add the tofu or steak and garlic. Stir-fry the tofu or steak
and garlic in the oil for until brown. Mix in the onion and ginger and
stir-fry for a minute. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook,
stirring for about 30 seconds or until thickened. From "The
Encyclopaedia of Chinese Cooking". Karen Alder Fngp13B Posted to
