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.
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.
Next we need 2 salted duck eggs.
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.
Here’s the result:
