I had a craving for a BBQ sandwich, so I found a recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com. I took the first reviewers advice and treated the tofu a little differently. She said to press all the water out of it (with paper towels and a weight), then to cut it into triangles and freeze it for an hour. I was worried that it was too frozen, but it turned out ok. I think next time I will use a different BBQ sauce (I used a Heinz bottled kind), and may take Toby’s helpful advice to marinate it beforehand (I suggested BBQ sauce, he said malt vinegar). I used really good kaiser rolls for this, and toasted them a little beforehand. I made a coleslaw that I put on the sandwich. That made it really good as well. I served this BBQ sandwich with potato chips, baked beans, and a caesar salad.
Barbeque Tofu Sandwiches
1 (12 ounce) package extra firm tofu
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
6 hamburger buns
1. Drain the tofu between paper towels until most of the water has been squeezed out.
2. Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet, fry tofu strips until golden brown on both sides. Add onion and cook for a few minutes, until onion is at your desired consistency.
4. Pour in barbeque sauce (use more or less, according to your taste). Cook the mixture for ten minutes on low and serve on buns.
