Preparation

  1. For the marinade, mince the garlic and mix with the remaining ingredients, except the tofu, until smooth.
  2. Cut the tofu into slices 0.78-inches thick, add them to the marinade and leave for 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Oil the grill and sear the tofu steaks over direct heat for 3 to 4 minutes each side, then finish cooking them over indirect heat with the lid closed for another 3 minutes each side. Baste often with the leftover marinade.

Notes

You can achieve attractive char marks if you sear the steaks on a cast-iron grill. It is best to use a particularly thin stainless steel spatula to turn them over.
