in Chinese, Pork, Side Dish


My dad’s been making this lovely steamed minced pork dish every weekend. That’s the way my dad operate. If something is good he’ll cook it every weekend. We don’t cook on weekdays instead we have a Chinese/Nyonya caterer deliver our dinner to us. :)

Dad's Steamed Minced Pork with Chinese Mushroom & Salted Duck Egg

So how yummy is this dish? All I can tell you is the mushroom is so soft and the pork is very flavorful (coupled with bits and pieces of the heavenly salted duck egg-ham tan) until I can just swallow the whole damn thing! LOL It’s so good that I know I must share with you all.

So here it is with dad as the cook and I as the recipe jotter cum photographer.

Soaked Chinese Mushroom

Begin by soaking 4 large Chinese mushroom with hot water for few hours/overnight to soften them.

Steamer

Add water into the steamer and let it boil. You can use wok as a steamer too.

Chinese Mushroom Slice Chinese Mushroom

L-R: cut off the mushroom stem, slice mushroom into small cubes (nibble size)

Next we need 2 salted duck eggs.

Salted Duck Egg Salted Duck Egg

L-R: salted duck egg covered with charcoal, use hand to remove charcoal and clean under running water after that

Salted Duck Egg Salted Duck Egg

Clockwise L-R: cleaned salted duck egg, crack salted duck egg with spoon or tip of the bowl, put yolk and white into a bowl, slice yolks into smaller pieces

Slice Ginger Slice Ginger

L-R: Thinly slice 4 pieces of ginger, cut them into tiny pieces.
Reason for adding ginger is to inhibit smelly pork smell (if any hehe)

Minced Pork with mushroom, salted egg, ginger

Place minced pork, Chinese mushroom, salted egg yolks and whites and ginger into a heat-resistant plate.

Add light soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper and water Mix Together

L-R: add cornflour, sesame oil, light soy sauce, warm water and dash of white pepper into the minced pork, mix well
Reason for adding cornflour is to bind all the ingredients together and also to have a smooth silky feel to it.

Flatten

Flatten surface with back of spoon.

Steam

By this time the steamer must be boiling. Steam the dish with lid close for 30 minutes or until cooked (pork has changes color).

Here’s the result:

we do similar here with regular egg beaten into the mixture… would love to try adding salted egg. while i can get salted yolks only, i’ve never seen whole uncooked salted eggs here. only boiled ones. i think i will use out usual method and add chopped boiled salted eggs instead! YUMM!

Hi Kayenne, we don’t eat uncooked salted eggs here as well. These will be steamed.
