Point in check
Make sure to stir-fry the ginger until it becomes soft, before you put in the garlic. Garlic gets cooked instantly. If you want to make it hot, torn the peppers into small pieces and heat them for a long time. It is not necessary to use both hard and fine-grained tofu. The ratio of hot paste and sweet paste is １：３, check the taste of the source frequently, and adjust the taste with salt, pepper, AJI-NO-MOTO and brown sugar. Finally put the tofu into the sauce to blend. The taste mixing hot paste and sweet paste does not always match the flavor inside the pan. To adjust the taste frequently, is a must to do.
Make sure to make the sauce hot first and later sweet. The orders to stir-fry should be ginger, garlic and minced pork. To tune the taste of the sauce, add hot paste and sweet paste. Adjusting the taste is a must do. When the taste is making a harmony by adding brown sugar and chicken soup stock, finally put in the tofu. A little adjustment to the sauce changes the taste instantly.
