If you weren't always vegan, you probably at some point in your life have had steak. I have yet to find a vegan substitute for it that makes me think *steak*. This intrigues me because chicken, fish and ground meat all have excellent vegan substitutes. I've had delicious vegan ham. But steak?
This recipe is in no way like those steaks you may remember. It is, however, juicy and delicious.
Barbecue Tofu Steak
One package extra firm tofu, frozen in the package, boiled, pressed, sliced
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. chili sauce
1-1/2 T. soy sauce
3 T. agave nectar
3 T. hoisin sauce
3 green onions, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Place the sliced tofu in a gallon sized Ziploc baggie. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to mix well. Pour this mixture into the baggie with the tofu, and smoosh it around to make sure all sides of each slice of tofu is well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
Lay the slices on a cookie sheet and pour the remaining marinade on top. Broil the tofu until the marinade starts to bubble. Turn the slices over and allow to broil again until everything is sizzling again. Serve. Enjoy!
