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.
Begin by soaking 4 large Chinese mushroom with hot water for few hours/overnight to soften them.
Meanwhile add water into the steamer and let it boil. You can use wok as a steamer too.
L-R: cut off the mushroom stem, slice mushroom into small cubes (nibble size)
Next we need 2 salted duck eggs. Remove the charcoal and clean the eggs under running water. Follow this post if you’re new to salted egg.
Crack the salted duck eggs into a bowl. Then chop yolks into smaller pieces.
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)
Place minced pork, Chinese mushroom, salted egg yolks and whites and ginger into a heat-resistant plate.
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 surface with back of spoon.
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:
Looks good eh?
Serve while hot. Best eaten with rice. 🙂

Arggh ‘lau hau sui’ already (salivating).

Thanks for sharing this recipe! Love the look + sound of it.
Hi Marisa, good luck then! 🙂
Hi Tigerfish, thank you.
Hi Anh, you should try it ya.
That looks so so good! I LOVE mushrooms. I recently made this portobello mushroom tower and it was so yummy!
Looks easy to make…. Good to have it for dinner.
Oh yeah super yummy!
This was a great recipe! Adds a lot of flavor and texture to my regular pork/salty egg dish. Thanks a lot!
You’re welcome newbie cooke. Glad you like it. 🙂
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.
Hello. Going to make this, first time using salted egg duck, had it in Malaysia holiday, so going to try making here. Chopping raw egg yolk seems strange to me, only bit i cant quite understand, so i take it the raw egg yolk is firm to hold and chop although not cooked. Wish me luck.X Looks good recipe, thanks for post.x
Hi Christine, yup you got that right regarding the raw salted egg yolk. Good luck and I hope you like it.
