Two Cool Mapo Tofu sites

Tonight I found two cool Mapo tofu sites: One is a web design project from a woman at RIT and it looks good! The only problem is that her recipe calls for ground beef! As I said before, ground pork is MUCH better and if you grind it at home, it's even better.

The other recipe is from a Sichuan travel agency. This is interesting because Sichuan is the home of this recipe. It corroborates my belief that pork should be used instead of beef because it has pork!

Thankfully neither of them put in filler like cabbage or peas like some restaurants seem to do for no reason at all. It's interesting that none of these recipes ask you to blanch the tofu which I have seen in other recipes presumably to firm up the tofu.
