  1. Add the oil to a large pan on high heat.
  2. When hot, add the onion, garlic, and salt, and cook for about 3 - 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms and continue to cook until the mushrooms release their moisture and begin to brown, about 7 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Crumble the tofu with your hands into the pan. Cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to avoid burning, until the tofu browns and crisps to your liking, between 15 - 30 minutes.
  5. Add in the spices and continue to cook and scrape until fragrant, about 1 -2 minutes.
  6. Add the vinegar and soy sauce, and stir to combine. Enjoy!
