  1. Drain tofu in a colander, then weigh down tofu with something heavy. Let it sit in the sink while preparing the sauce.
  2. Combine brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, soy sauce and juice from the pineapple in a saucepan. Bring to a boil until thick and clear.
  3. Slice tofu into cubes and add to sauce; marinate while rice cooks or 1 hour.
