I’m always open to quick, simple and delicious food. This steamed minced pork in egg custard is the exact example of it. It’s so easy that even before I can get cosy in the kitchen, the prep work is already done. All that’s left is steaming. This side dish is a perfect accompaniment for rice and porridge. You can even eat it as it is (like me) if you’re a big fan of the ingredients. And talking about the ingredients, it involves only a few components. Nothing fancy.
Since this dish is quick and easy, you can prep the egg custard mixture a day ahead and steam it when you want to eat it. This side dish is perfect for those who do daily meal prep, for busy mother and singles. The taste is fairly homely (it’s a Nyonya dish), nothing wham-bam. A good enough comfort food to warms the soul.
Steamed minced pork in egg custard.
First thing first, bring the steamer to a boil.
Add minced pork, eggs, soy sauce, salt and black pepper in a medium bowl.
Whisk with a fork until ingredients are mix thoroughly.
Then pour the mixture into a heatproof bowl and steam for 14 minutes.
Sprinkle some or a lot of chopped spring onions and serve warm with rice or porridge. Yummy!
The consistency is not watery like regular steamed egg dish. If it’s too dry on your first try, feel free to add 2 tablespoons of water to the mixture. Mine was just nice, texture and taste wise.
Give it a try and let me know if you like it.
