This is what I made myself for lunch the other day. I've made it several times since. It's just that good. This is a veganized version of the Orange Beef Recipe from blogchef.net. Veganizing this one was simple, just a quick substitution of pressed tofu cubes for the beef, and I pan-fried them rather than deep frying because I'm just too lazy to deep fry. Tossing the tofu (of beef) in cornstarch makes them fry up deliciously crispy and chewy.
The sauce for this dish is a light and less sweet version of typical fast-food Chinese versions. I also made this dish with chicken for my husband. He got up to get seconds before he was even done with his first helping. That's a pretty good endorsement!
