Preparation

  1. Mix all the teriyaki sauce ingredients well.
  2. Cut the tofu block into about 1/2-inch thick slices.
  3. Coat a skillet with oil and warm up over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the tofu steaks. Depending on the skillet size, you will likely need to cook these in 2 batches.
  5. Flip and cook the tofu until it develops a golden-brown crust on both sides, repeat until all the tofu is cooked.
  6. Leave the last batch in the skillet and pour in half of the teriyaki sauce mix.
  7. Keep the heat on, coat, and flip the tofu steaks with the sauce as the sauce reduces, clarifies, and thickens, about 2 minutes.
  8. Repeat with the rest of the tofu steaks and the sauce.
