|Frozen tofu absorbs marinade like a sponge and makes a firm and flavorful mock meat.|
|Time||20 minutes hands on, plus tofu freezing, thawing, pressing, and marinating|
While the tofu is pressing, heat the oil over medium heat. Add everything up to the bay leaf and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until the veggies are tender.
Add vinegar, bring to a boil, and simmer until the liquid reduces by a third, about 5 minutes. Stir in the stock and remove from heat.
Slice the tofu into four equal pieces and arrange in a single layer in the dish. Cover with marinade and let sit for at least an hour, or refrigerate overnight.
Remove from marinade and sauté (3-4 minutes per side) or grill (5 minutes per side). Or you can bake it in the marinade for 20 minutes at 350.
"Corned" comes from the term "corns of salt," meaning large rock salt.
