Hickory Smoked Tofu Steaks

Yet even more BBQ goodness for those planning to grill this weekend. I bought some smoking chips and thought they would enhance the flavour of some marinated tofu steaks. Indeed they did.

- 1 pkg extra firm tofu, frozen, thawed, pressed, and cut into thick slices
- 1/4 cup HP or A1 steak sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetarian stir fry sauce
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- few drops sesame oil
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp water
- smoking wood chips (optional)

1. Combine all ingredients in a shallow dish and marinate tofu slices for 30 mins or more.
2. Preheat grill with smoking chips (see instructions on bag) to about 500 degrees.
3. Oil grill and cook tofu 4-5 mins per side, flipping 4 times to get those nice criss cross grill lines, and basting with extra marinade.
4. Serve slathered with HP or A1 sauce.

These look freakin' awesome. And HP sauce is a staple around our house.

Have a great weekend.

Should I drain the water out of the packaging before I freeze, or just put it in as is?
I don't cook with tofu alot because I've had mixed success.

belle dee,
Just stick the whole pack in the freezer. When I come home from shopping I fire a few in. The, just thaw and press to use.

Sadly I am one who doesn't enjoy tofu. I hope that preparing this recipe, I can change that :)

The marinade on this is fantastic - hearty with a sweet touch
