Country Bob's Tofu & Giveaway Time! (2.11.2009)

The good folks at "Country Bob's" were kind enough to send me two bottles of their All-Purpose Sauce to try out. I love getting to try new things!I thought it might be great to use as a marinade for my baked tofu because I saw another blogger using this same sauce as a dip for their tofu. (I cant remember who I saw doing that!)

The flavor of this sauce is tangy with a subtle sweetness and a strong Worcestershire flavor. The consistency is thicker than regular Steak Sauce, more like a BBQ sauce, and I can understand everything in the ingredient list!It was cut off in the picture, but the Serving Size for the nutrition facts above is 1 tbsp.

The tofu didn't crisp up as much as I like, which could have been because I was anxious to try it. After my first bite, I realized I hadnt used enough sauce for marinating because the flavor was not coming through, so I drizzled more Country Bob's on top for extra flavor. Yum. I especially like this sauce because it makes me want to listen to country music and plan a BBQ. :)

Want to try it?

WOW I really want to try that!
thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

matt/ I usually press it for about 20 min so most of the liquid is out of it. Bake at 400 for 20-30 mins, flipping once. I think the key to the crispiness (for me) is the thinner I slice it and the sauce. More of a caramelized crispiness, i guess. Soyaki from Trader Joes is the marinade I use the most.

Heck YES!!!! Wow, usually bbq sauces are loaded w/ sugar and calories so that nutritional label shows otherwise!

oh that looks good!!!!

peaceandpeanutbutter February 12, 2009 at 2:20 PM  

Great Blog!

I'd love to try that! Looks great on tofu!

tfh February 12, 2009 at 3:08 PM  

Yum! So generous. I always forget that tofu needs about three times as much marinade as I initially put on it-- otherwise it's bland city!

Annie February 12, 2009 at 3:14 PM  

Yum! I've been seeing this on a few blogs and would love to try some! :)

Frank H Greenlee February 12, 2009 at 3:35 PM
