About this recipe: This Vietnamese dish is loved by all, even those who think they don't like tofu!
This is a very tasty dish. I did make some changes. i did not coat the tofu in cornstarch and deep fry it. I used just enough oil to brown the sides to cut down on the fat. I also added some carrots and they were a nice touch. The only other thing I will change next time is to add the tofu to the sauce sooner so that the sauce will soak into the tofu more. I might also add baby corn because my husband and I like it. - 19 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A surprisingly hearty recipe that would be good for a cold winter night as it is so easy and satisfying! I added a little garlic and chili pepper for an extra kick, and omitted the cornstarch, letting the tofu simmer in the sauce. The only other suggestion I have would be to put off adding the tomatoes until the last minute or they turn to mush. This makes great leftovers too. I'll be making this one again. - 27 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was amazing! Yes the tomato cooked down, but the sauce tasted 10x better with tomato cooked in. Before, it tasted too much like white wine. At the end, I threw in some slices of tomato and put it over a low heat so the tomato could soften. I also added mushrooms, garlic and chili flakes. Delicious! - 06 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
