  1. Cut tofu into 1 inch slices. Poke each slice with a fork so that marinade can fully penetrate.
  2. Place tofu into a bag or container.
  3. Pour about 1/2 the bottle of jerk sauce over the tofu, or enough to cover the tofu completely.
  4. Add half of the minced onions to the tofu and marinade.
  5. Allow the tofu to sit for 30 minutes.
  6. Boil the brown rice.
  7. Put the rice into a large frying pan and add the pinto beans and the rest of the onions. Put on low heat.
  8. Add pepper and salt to the rice and pinto beans.
  9. Drain some of the sauce from the tofu. (DO NOT DRAIN MORE THAN HALF OF THE SAUCE.).
  10. Add the rest of the tofu and sauce into another large pan on medium high heat.

  12. Add to rice and beans.

  14. Add garlic powder.
  15. Add salt and pepper. (I did not put a measurement on these ingredients because you should add according to your taste for salt and pepper.).
