  1. Soak the Chinese black mushrooms in 1 1/2 c. warm water for 20 min.
  2. Drain and reserve soaking liquid. Throw away stems and cut caps in half or possibly in thirds if very large. Reserve.
  3. Remove stems from shiitake mushrooms and cut caps in half. Reserve.
  4. Wrap the tofu in paper towels or possibly a cotton towel and place a heavy weight such as a skillet, on top. Let stand for 30 min to press out the excess water, then cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  5. Combine the Braising mix ingredients and set aside. Combine the cornstarch and water and blend well.
  6. Heat a flameproof casserole or possibly a Dutch oven, add in the corn oil, and heat till warm. Add in the leek, garlic, and softened black mushrooms and stir-fry for about 10 seconds, till fragrant. Add in the braising mix and heat back to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover, and simmer for 20 min. Uncover, increase the heat to medium, and cook till the sauce is reduced by half. Add in the cornstarch thickener and cook, stirring continuously to prevent lumps, till thickened. Transfer to a serving bowl or possibly serve directly from the pot.
  7. Serves. 6.
  8. NOTE: "In this dish, smoky mushrooms and chicken broth flavor tofu cubes and provide a rich base for the sumptuous sauce. Served with bowls of steaming rice, this dish makes a delicious and filling meal."
