  • Season with salt and pepper.

Prep Sauce

  • Thinly slice shiitake and button mushrooms as well as the onions.
  • Separate the enoki mushroom from each other with your hands.

Cook Patties

  • Place tofu steak patties in and flip when golden brown.
  • Cook until each side is golden brown. Set aside.

Cook Sauce

  • Put oil into frying pan and place onions in.

Notes

  • Note this recipe includes eggs and oyster sauce.
  • Make sure to cook the patties on a medium or medium-low heat, as will burn on higher heats.
