This Yong Tau Foo in Black Bean Sauce is a homely Chinese dish. The yong tau foo (abbreviated to “YTF” in this article) pieces cooked in a savoury black bean sauce is something different from the usual YTF soup one usually have at home. This dish is so deliciously savoury and spicy that we always eat more rice to polish off all the sauce. It is entirely optional, but cooking and serving this dish in a claypot makes this dish extra special.

More about “Yong Tau Foo” (釀豆腐).  It literally stands for “stuffed bean curd”, but now the name has expanded to a broader term and apply to all kinds of ingredients stuffed with fish paste – for example, lady’s fingers, bitter gourd and eggplant. Even ingredients which are not stuffed such as meat balls, dumplings and certain vegetables have now been associated with common YTF selections. To me, the YTF sold at the wet markets are superior to the ones at the supermarket, so I will not miss buying them to cook this dish whenever I have a chance.

  3. Hi Noobcook, I came across yr recipes a couple of wks ago when I was searching for recipes on baked food. So far I hv tried out yr 3 cups chickent n they were fabulous. Previously I had a japanese version of that dish but I think yours is tastier! Im going to try making the YTF with black bean sauce 2day but Im going 2 be using the LKK garlic black bean sauce instead coz my little princess cant eat spicy! Looking fwd to yr new recipes….cheers! :-)

  4. Hi Pauline, thanks for your kind words … always happy when I hear that someone out there like my recipes :) Hope you like the rest as well :-)

  5. Have cooked the YTF n they were great! Personally I luv YTF esp the “tau pok”. Cant believe that such a simple dish could taste so gooood! You wont believe this, Im going to cooked it again tis Fri!!! yum..yum…. :lol:

  6. Btw I have tried making the pumpkin rice but it was a disaster coz I think I put in too much water to cook the rice n they turned out to be soggy…..but my little princess said it was delicious!!!! Will try cooking it again!

  7. Thanks again Pauline, glad u like the YTF. Yes I tend to add too much water for the pumpkin/cabbage rice too if I guestimate, so now I measure with a cup.

  8. This is making my mouth water! I love yong tau foo! Serve with black bean sauce is absolutely yummy!

  9. I could really have a bowl like this on a cold winters night.
