Yeah you shared that method but my tofu press will practically dry it to dust if I start it early and torque the hell out of it.

I've retained the info you shared if I'm ever short on time though.

You'll be happy to know that I made chickun pot pie last night and have perfected my seitan recipes for lobstar and crawfysh

I was hoping it would be another amusing name for faux meat (porq, beaf, etc...)

Did you ever try the trick to use hot salt water to drive the water out of tofu to help it crisp up? I think it was you I told about it but I couldn't remember the details. I found the method...

- Press the block of super-firm tofu between paper towels like you normally would for about 15 minutes. Keep it in the fridge while you're doing it

- Bring a quart (or whatever "enough" water will be) of water to a boil. Add 3 (yes, 3) tbsp salt for every quart of water. This will make the water a little saltier than seawater.

- Cut the block into whatever sized pieces you need and put them in a heat-proof container (like an empty pot)

- Pour just enough water over the tofu pieces to submerge the pieces. Leave the lid off. The cold tofu will cool the boiling water down quickly so you only want enough to cover it and "shock" the outside of the pieces.

- After 15 minutes drain the water away and spread the tofu out on paper towels.

- Proceed with tofu cooking madness.

Note that the purpose of the salt is to denature the protein, not flavor it (although it will to some extent). You can use salt other than plain ol' table salt but it won't help any more. If you use ones with significant amounts of other minerals it can hamper the protein tightening and interfere with the process.

One of my employees gave me 6 homemade tamales (chicken and beef). I added Spanish rice and refried beans to make them a meal.
