1 block of firm or extra firm tofu, drained well
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup flour
2 Tbs soy sauce (I use low sodium)
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp mirin
salt & pepper to taste
Drain tofu for approximately 1/2 hour. I wrap tofu in paper towels and place on plate with cutting board on top of it and large round dish on top of that. Weird but it works. Change paper towels several times.
While draining tofu, mince garlic. Chop up onion and place in round dish. Add 2 Tbs soy sauce, one Tbs sugar and 1 tsp mirin. Stir well.
When "steaks" are drained, pat dry and dredge in flour.
On medium high setting, add oil to cast iron skillet and saute garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add a little more oil and cook tofu steaks for about 5 minutes on one each side until browned. Add soy sauce mixture and cook about 2 minutes on each side until sauce cooks down and coats steaks well.
