Your rating: None Average: 4 (2 votes)

“Red-cooking” is a traditional Chinese braising technique, using soy sauce, that turns the food a gorgeous reddish brown color. A quick version of the technique is used here to transform mushrooms and tofu into a rich, earthy, saucy dish. Serve over steamed brown rice or as a soup. To make this stir-fry vegetarian, see Vegetarian Variation below.

Pretty good attempt at a classic Chinese dish

Hong shao-style is actually a very traditional form of authentic Chinese food. It usually doesn't have as much liquid as this dish but I would say the flavors are pretty close to the real deal. You definitely need the dried mushrooms or to use mushroom broth for that authentic taste.

Different, Yet Satisfying

Good alternative to traditional Chinese cuisine. While I'm not a fan of mushrooms, I threw some broccoli and asparagus in the dish as a replacement. I also like a bit of duck sauce on the side to mix into the rice. Tofu preparation is also easier with a tofu press like the one from TofuXpress. Overall, good dish with good taste.
