Ma Po Tofu

1 T cooking oil
1 tsp (or several cloves, crushed) garlic
1 tsp fresh chopped ginger
1 bunch scallions
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 Cup Water
1 tsp cornstarch
1/3-1/2 lb tofu cut into bite-size chunks
1 tsp black bean sauce
1 tsp spicy chili sauce
1 T soy sauce

In a large skillet, saute ginger, garlic, and scallions in the
cooking oil. When garlic is slightly browned, add ground pork,
and cook until meat is thoroughly browned.

Mix cornstarch in a cup of water, and add to the meat in the skillet.
Bring to a simmer. At this point, add the bean sauce, chili sauce,
and soy sauce and stir all well. The sauce should just begin to
thicken a bit.

Finally, add the tofu pieces, and gently stir so it's well mixed
with the sauce. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve over
rice.

Variations:

Use ground beef or ground turkey, or mix ground meats.
Use no meat at all, and saute bell peppers, mushrooms, or other vegetables
Use both meat and vegetables.
Add fresh spicy chiles.
