The Chef: Richard Hales

The Restaurant: Blackbrick, Midtown Miami

The Dish: Ma Po Tofu

Ingredients:

8 oz. firm tofu cubed

2 cups vegetable oil

1 Tbs. minced garlic

4 oz ground pork

1 Tsp. sichuan peppercorn ground fine

1 Tsp. Chinese hot chili oil

Method of Preparation:

- In a wok heat vegetable oil to 300 degrees (medium high heat). Add ground pork and blanch until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Drain pork to remove oil.

Toss to coat and slightly reduce liquid about 1-2 minutes. Add the sesame oil and scallions and toss a few times more.

To Plate:

When it's done put directly into a serving bowl. Serve hot with jasmine rice on the side.
