Stir - Fried Crabmeat With Bean Curd
(Hsieh - Jou - Tou Fu)
What You Need:
  • ½ pound fresh crabmeat or one 7½ ounce can of crabmeat
  • 4 three-inch squares fresh bean curd, about ½-inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil or flavorless vegetable oil
  • 1 scallion, including the green top, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup chicken stock, fresh or canned
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock, fresh or canned, or cold water

  • How To Cook:
    1. Pick over the crabmeat, and discard all bits of shell and cartilage.

    2. Slice each square of bean curd into ¼-inch slices, and cut the slices in half to make 24 strips 1½ inches long and 1 inch wide.

    3. Have the above ingredients, and the oil, scallions, ginger, salt, stock, black pepper and cornstarch mixture within easy reach.

    TO COOK:
    1. Set a 12-inch wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Pour in the oil, swirl it about in the pan and heat for another 30 seconds, turning the heat down to moderate if the oil begins to smoke.

    2. Add the scallions and ginger, stir once or twice, then add the bean curd, salt and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, cover the pan and cook over moderate heat for 2 or 3 minutes.

    3. Gently stir in the crabmeat and black pepper, and heat through for about 1 minute. Give the cornstarch mixture a quick stir to recombine it and pour it over the crabmeat.

    4. Cook for another minute, stirring constantly, until the crabmeat and bean curd are coated with a light, clear glaze. Transfer to a platter and serve at once.

    To Serve: 6 to 8
