The peanuts did not come out like a traditional Chinese dish. Maybe they need to be quickly fried first? Not sure but mine were soft and the texture not good. Additionally you can't fry tofu properly according to this recipe. Have tried a million times and it comes out a soggy mess stuck to the bottom. You have to really fry it in oil at med-high heat - needs to be enough oil for the tofu to float! Then you'll get your nice golden tofu with white insides. If you follow this recipe it will all stick to your pan or be soggy and break into pieces.
I've been reading the recipes and comments on this site and people want to make a good recipe out of what's given, not invent their own stuff to add on the fly. I'm tired of not knowing what to make, picking a recipe that seems good, only to find out my family hates it because it's just not good. It kills the adventurous cooking spirit.
