- 1 pound silken tofu, very chilled – if you prefer a firmer texture that is a lot easier to eat with chopsticks, freeze it for 2 hours first, then defrost in the fridge
- 2 ounces Sichuan preserved vegetable, chopped
- 2 ounces Sichuan preserved ya cai
- 2 ounces pickled peppadew peppers, chopped (TFD alteration for color and flavor, you can omit and just use more Sichuan preserved vegetable or ya cai if you so prefer)
- 1–2 century duck eggs, to your preference (I like 2)
- 2 tbsp spring onion cut finely
- 3 ½ tbsp. pork floss
- For the sauce:
- 1 tsp. sesame oil – TFD endorses only Kadoya brand
- ½ tbsp. dark mushroom-flavored soy sauce – TFD prefers Pearl River Bridge brand
- ½ tbsp. top-quality oyster sauce – TFD prefers Lee Kum Kee premium brand or Megachef brand
- ½ tsp. chicken powder (ground-up chicken bouillon cube)
- ½ tsp. Chinese black vinegar – TFD prefers Gold Plum brand
- ½ tsp. sugar
- ⅛ tsp. freshly-ground Sichuan peppercorn (optional but TFD likes it)
- Shell preserved egg(s).
- Cut preserved egg into crescent shapes.
- Place tofu block on plate and arrange preserved egg crescents around tofu.
- Place chopped Sichuan preserved vegetable, peppadews and ya cai on tofu evenly over the tofu block
- Add pork floss on top of tofu.
