How to make it

  • Slice the tofu into 1/2 inch slices and place between several layers of paper towels, put a dinner plate on top and let stand for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the plate, discard the paper towels and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the chicken broth, cornstarch, soy sauce, oyster sauce and garlic chili sauce; set aside.
  • In a food processor, add the pork cubes, ginger, garlic, jalapeno, and green onions. Pulse until the meat is finely chopped.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu and saute, stirring frequently, until lightly browned; remove and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining oil and the pork mixture; saute, stirring frequently to break up the pieces; saute until the pork loses its pink color. Add the edamame and tofu; saute 1 minute.
  • Add the sauce mixture; bring to a simmer and simmer until slightly thickened.
  • Toss the hot cooked noodles with the sesame seed oil. Divide the pasta among four heated bowls, top with the Ma Po Tofu and garnish with green onions, if desired.
