This dish brings back childhood memories. This is a homey dish that my mum used to cook for us when we were small. It’s a very simple steamed pork recipe yet so appetizing and tasty when served with rice or porridge or even oat porridge.
Course: Main
Cuisine: Chinese

Ingredients

  • 300 g Minced pork
  • 3 tablespoon Tung Choy, , soaked in water for 15 minutes, rinsed 2x and chopped into smaller pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic, minced and fry into garlic crisps

Seasoning:

  • 2 tablespoon Light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 pinch MSG, or 1/2 cube chicken bullion, optional

    Instructions

    • Mix minced pork with tung choy and seasoning ingredients and set aside for 15 minutes.
    • Wet a dish, shake off excess water to prevent steamed pork from sticking to it. Place seasoned meat on dish, spread out and level meat very gently with the back of a wet metal spoon. Try to make it about 1 cm thickness. Drizzle the garlic oil over the top of meat.
    • Steam in a wok over rapidly boiling water for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
    • When done, garnish with the garlic crisps and serve immediately.

    Rice Cooker Method: (This dish can also be steamed on top of rice in the rice cooker so no washing of cooking utensils is needed……. So easy and convenient!)

    • Mixed all the ingredients in a slightly deep plate that fits the steamer in a rice cooker.
    • When rice is going to be cooked , place plate on top of the steamer and let the steam of rice cook the meat for about 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

Notes

Tung choy must be washed as there may be sand in it. Use finger to pick up the tong choy instead of draining it so that the sand remains in the bowl.

 

                               Tung choy  used to steam the minced pork

 

Transfer all mix ingredients to a deep plate for steaming

 

 
After steamed for 15 minutes ……… ready to be served

 

Garnish with crispy garlic and chopped spring onion 

 

It’s delicious ….. not too salty …..just perfect …..very good ….. as good as the one from the hawker centre.

 

The steam pork is so moist and tender,  yet so simple and easy to make

 

Best to serve immediately with steamed rice or porridge or even oat porridge for a healthier meal.

 

 
SO … ENJOY!
