Chinese BBQ Sesame Squares

on February 22, 2012
I had a random craving the other day for Chinese BBQ Pork.  Not wanting to give into temptation I began to think of something that would give me the taste I was looking for…smoky and spicy. 
So tonight I experimented and was quite happy with my results.  Give it a try and see what you think.
Chinese BBQ Sesame Squares
1 Block Extra Firm Tofu
1 C. Egg Beaters
1/2 C. Unsweetened Soy Milk
1/4 C. Beef Flavored Seasoning
1 C. Panko Crumbs
2/3 C. Vegan Imitation Bacon Bits
1/4 C. Sesame Seeds
Drain and dry tofu, then slice in thin pieces (approx 1/4″ thick). 
Mix in shallow pan: egg beaters, soy milk and beef flavored seasoning.
Place sliced tofu into egg mixture and allow to marinate for approximately 30 minutes.
Mix together in shallow pan:  panko crumbs, bacon bits and sesame seeds.  crush the mixture to break into smaller crumbs.
Place marinated tofu pieces in crumb mixture and turn until well coated.
Fry in shallow canola oil until browned.  Approximately 3 minutes each side. 
Serve with Hot Mustard and additional sesame seeds.  YUMMY!
The sesame seeds gives it the “Chinese Food” feel and the bacon bits give it a bit of the smoky bbq flavor I was looking for.  Pre-marinating it in a beef flavored base gives it just a bit more of a “meaty” taste as well.  Overall, I am very happy with the way it turned out.  Enjoy!
