taukan (wet beancurd strips). Char siew is a dish that every kids love and adults too. LOL!
There are many versions of vegetarian Char Siew. Here is my simplified Chinese Vegan Char Siew Recipe.
Taukan, 1 block
Five Spice powder, 1/2 teaspoon
Light soya sauce, 2 tablespoons
Sugar, 3 tablespoons
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Marinade the taukan with all the ingredients. Heat up wok and put in the vegetable oil. Slowly put in the taukan pieces one by one. Taukan cooked easily, so you just have to fry it until they turned golden brown in colour. Take out the taukan and drain away excess oil. Cut the taukan into strips.
Use the leftover marinade as the sauce. Cook it in the frying pan and bring to a boil. Pour a little of the sauce into the fried taukan before serving.
