Sweet and Salty Tofu Steaks

Tofu can be a hard sell for some but with the right ingredients even the biggest hater can enjoy this tasty dish.  To make these tofu steaks, I simply cut the block into eight pieces. You want to squeeze as much water out as possible. I lay a dish towel across a plate, then add a layer of paper towels; place the tofu pieces on the plate in a single layer; cover with paper towels and the other half of the dish towel; place a plate on top and store in the fridge for 2 hours.  In the meantime, whisk together white miso, tamari, mirin, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Heat a saute pan, add a teaspoon of canola oil. Brush your marinade mixture on one side of each tofu steak. Sear in pan. While searing one side, use a brush to cover other side with marinade. Flip when the tofu turns a toasty shade of brown.  You can keep brushing on marinade and flipping.  The more you do it, the sweeter the final product. Feel free to sprinkle with some sesame seeds.  

Marinade ingredients:
1 tablespoon white miso
2 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons mirin
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
