Bring on the Baby Spiced Pork and Tofu

Posted Apr 14 2010 12:00am

So tonight, after our relaxing afternoon and walk around the neighborhood (walk total today was about 7 miles – 5 with a neighbor/friend this morning and about 2 with Brady tonight) we came home to eat dinner.  I had marinated some thin pork chops for Brady and some tofu cubes for me.

Our spicy/sweet marinade was a mixture of a few ideas.  One of them was from an old Cooking Light recipe I ripped out and saved.  It involved soy sauce and maple syrup.  The rest I just came up with.

Sweet and Spicy Marinade – aka Bring on the Baby Sauce

*I didn’t really measure I just threw things together, but I am going to estimate.  Feel free to change the measurements as you’d like!

  • 1/3 c. soy sauce (I used lite sodium)
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup
  • BIG sprinkle of crushed red pepper
  • medium sprinkle of red pepper flakes
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • 1 T. rice vinegar

Mix together and use to marinate any meat or tofu you would like.  I also added sesame seeds!

We had our main dishes on top of large salads that Brady made.  The salads included:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • sweet peppers
  • avocado
  • tomato
  • bacon for Brady
  • cheese for Brady
  • sugar snap peas
  • hard boiled egg for Brady

They were light, spicy and summery!


I cooked his pork chops on the stove in a pan because I thought they might burn on the grill.


I baked my tofu at 500 for about 20 minutes.  I like it better cooked for 40 min on 450, but I was hungry and impatient!
