Combine all the dry ingredients. Roll each tofu slice in the rub until coated. Set aside.

Heat oil on medium to high heat in a large frying pan. Fry tofu for a few minutes on each side until browned. Add more oil, if needed. Remove from pan.

Immediately add whiskey to pan and reduce until two-thirds the liquid is left.

Add remaining wet ingredients (except the tofu) and mix well. Bring to boil to thicken before removing from heat. Add tofu and turn to coat.
