Instructions

1) Combine broth, sherry (or rice wine), soy sauce, 1 tablespoon                     cornstarch, sugar and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.


2) Cut tofu into 3/4-inch cubes and pat dry, then sprinkle with salt.


3) Place the remaining 2 tablespoons cornstarch in a large bowl. Add the tofu; toss gently to coat.


4) Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the tofu; cook, undisturbed, until browned, about 3 minutes. Gently turn and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned all over, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.


5) Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, garlic and     ginger; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broccoli and water; cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until tender-crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir the reserved broth mixture and add to the pan.


6) Cook until the sauce has thickened (1 to 2 minutes). Return the tofu to the pan; toss to combine with the broccoli and sauce.
