I squished all the drinking water out seeking not to crack the tofu. The paper towels were being soaking damp. At the time it was as dry as I could get it I sliced it into cubes – possibly 2 inches every.

In a different bowl I put sriracha sauce, soy sauce, garlic flakes, and some seasoning. Just after mixing it and putting some gloves on I positioned the tofu cubes into the sauce. I carefully moved the pieces in the bowl to make guaranteed I protected each and every piece.
