Hello, Lounger! Have a wonderful Monday! I hope you’re having an awesome day! After seeing one of my tofu dishes, my sister-in-law suggested making a beef and tofu dish in tomato sauce a few days ago. It struck me as a brilliant idea! So I managed to create this recipe for Tasty Saucy Beef and Tofu in Tomato Sauce.
I tend to favor beef meat because it contains many proteins, vitamins, and minerals. On the other hand, Tofu contains all nine essential amino acids, which are incredibly beneficial to our bodies. So, without further ado, please allow me to share the recipe!

Time to Cook our Tasty Saucy Beef and Tofu in Tomato Sauce
- First, we’ll pan-fry the tofu in olive oil to get that lovely brownish color. Once completed, set aside.
- Next, in the same pan, melt some butter and sauté the onion, garlic, and chilis until they are soft and aromatic.
- Then add the bell peppers, mix well, and allow to cook for a minute or two.
- Then, add the ground beef and thoroughly combine all of the ingredients.
- After the ground beef has been browned, season with oyster sauce and combine. Toss in the pan-fried tofu.
- Then stir in the tomato paste. Add the water and season with brown sugar to achieve a balanced flavor and avoid too much sourness from the tomato paste. Combine it all.
- Finally, to taste, season with salt and pepper, and add the Petchay leaves. Toss a bit for a final touch of cooking.
- Serve hot with a slice of bread or a cup of rice on the side.

- If you prefer flavorful ground beef, it should be 15 to 20% fat. Lean ground beef, on the other hand, is healthier because it contains less fat.
- If my ground beef is fatty, I usually use extra virgin oil and vegan butter to limit the undesirable fat.
- Pechay is a type of leafy vegetable that grows well in jars. It’s a popular vegetable in Southeast Asian cooking. In the West, they are also recognized as “bok choy” or “pak choy.”
