2-3 blocks, about 500g (1 lb) tokwa (tofu)
60ml (1/4 cup) oil
1 small onion, chopped
125ml (1/2 cup) vinegar
60ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
250g (8oz) pork head, simmered in 1 hour, cubed (optional)
500g (1 lb) pork shoulder, simmered 30mins, cubed
2-3 pcs sili panigang (finger chili) as spice (optional)
Chopped spring options, to garnish (optional)
1-2 pinch of pepper (optional)
Pat the tokwa (tofu) dry if it is moist, then cut into cubes. Heat oil and fry the tokwa (tofu) pieces in batches until they turn brown, about two to three minutes each side. Do not overcook. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels.
*Another way is to cut the tokwa (tofu) in halves horizontally and fry for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and cut into cubes.
In a mixing bowl, mix together onion, vinegar, finger chili, and soy sauce. Taste mixture; if it's too sour, add a little amount of water. Let stand for a few minutes for flavors to blend.
In a large bowl, combine the diced pork head, pork shoulder and tokwa (tofu)
Pour the soy sauce/vinegar/chili/onion mixture over the diced meats and tokwa (tofu). Stir to mix. Add pepper if desired. Also, if desired, garnish with spring onions.
Serve as a side dish or finger food.
