Steamed Pork with Egg

Steamed Pork with Salted Egg 01

Please excuse me with this pockmarked egg dish with deep river valley running through it. The dish got overheated! This is actually one of my childhood favourite - Steamed Pork with Egg.

I've actually forgotten about this dish until recently when I was at my parents' place, my mom made this for my BoiBoi albeit using chicken meat instead. So I've asked her how to go about it and here goes another guesstimation dish again...

Mix in some cornflour and grounded white pepper into minced pork or chicken. If you have a salty palate, you can add a dash of soy sauce. Set aside. In a bowl, crack in 2 eggs and 1 salted egg. If you really like salted egg yolk, you can add in one more salted egg, just the yolk and omit the whites. Mash the salted egg yolk a little then beat lightly taking care not to create foam. Otherwise the surface won't look pretty. Mix in the meat evenly and pour into a heatproof plate. Steam on low heat for about 10-12 mins.

As easy as that and the reason why mine turned out pockmarked was because I've used my electric steamer that don't allow me to control the heat. So I guess the next time, I cannot be so lazy then.

Hahaha... I like your comment about the "deep river valley"... We all get that sometimes when we cook at home. It's part of the appeal, yes? :)

It needs skill to make a smooth surface. I can only do it with just eggs. :P

I love this dish too and it needs to be cooked in very very low heat and the consistency becomes almost like a soft creamy custard. Great winter dish too!
