  • Start by preparing the stir-fry sauce mixture. Combine the wine, light soy sauce, sugar, white pepper, and sesame oil. Set aside.
  • (At this point, if using pork or chicken, you’d preheat the wok until it was smoking, add a tablespoon of oil, and then sear the meat until just cooked. Remove to a bowl and set aside. If not, move on to the next step.)
  • Place a wok over medium heat. When the wok has heated, add the oil and the ginger. Cook for 30 seconds, and add the garlic. Cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Add the tofu, and stir-fry for another minute. Turn up the heat to high, add the garlic chives, and stir-fry for 1 minute (at this point, you can also add your pre-cooked meat, if using). Add the sauce mixture, and stir-fry for another 30 seconds. Season with salt to taste. The dish is done once the chives are wilted. Serve immediately.
