Traditional Sichuan Mapo Tofu is a famous Chinese dish that happens to be one of my favorite things to eat. It’s spicy, hot, aromatic, tender and sometimes numbing! Now that i’m opening my own place, I just had to put something Mapo on the menu. In my version, I dispensed with the ground pork and upped the ante with pork belly. I use a tweaked traditional Mapo sauce, braise the pork belly, and lay them on top of rice (or your carb of choice) and a bed of silken tofu.
