Ma Pa Tofu Hot Pot
MaPo Tofu is a famous Szechuan tofu dish.  It is a combination of tofu set in a spicy chili thick sauce, fresh mushrooms, and minced pork to create a deep, rich, and spicy fusion.  The silken soft tofu is cut up into small squares and then blanches for a couple of minutes.  The marinated minced pork goes into the heated wok first.  It is stir fried until the minced pork color darkens.  Now all the other ingredients get added:  mushrooms, stock mixture, chili bean paste, tofu, green onions, and spices.  We scoop everything into a metal hot pot and put over medium heat.  The pot is lined with lettuce to avoid the all the goodness from sticking to the bottom.  Bring the hot pot to a boil and it will be served sizzling & steaming HOT!
