Toban (donabe skillet) cooking...Quick Tofu Steak

I'm already in deep love with my new black TOBAN (Iga-yaki donabe skillet).

Here's my brand new black toban with handles. I hope you can see the rustic "wabi-sabi" beauty, which is an inherent characteristic of authentic Iga-yaki donabe. It's so beautiful that I can't keep my eyes off it.

My first dish with this toban was simple Tofu Steak! I simply seared sliced tofu with enoki mushrooms and drizzled soy sauce to finish. Tofu was so hot and fluffy inside. It made a great izakaya-style dish.

You can find the recipe on toiro's website.
Happy donabe life.
