Steps -
1. In a pan with some oil, add the minced pork and halfway through, season it with salt and pepper. Then add the minced garlic in. Stir fry to mix well. Add onions now if you like.
2. Add light soya sauce, black bean sauce and the chilli sauce. Mix well.
3. Add the chicken stock in. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.

5. Thicken the sauce by adding the cornflour mixture and stir.
6. Add the tofu in, gently stir to mix in and off flames. 

Garnish with scallions. Done!

1. I used water + 1/4 chicken cube to replace the chicken stock.
2. I used two tubes of egg tofu instead (each weigh at 100g).
