Steamed Waxed Meat Rice in Casserole [CNY 2012]

This is a very easy delicious dish to prepare for CNY lunch or dinner.  Usually, I will prepare this dish for dinner with hubby when we are back to our own home after spending many days at my in-law's place.  This is usually our most enjoyable CNY dish because it is easy to prepare.  Most time, we never really enjoy a good meal at my in-law's place since CNY eve until we are back home [that is for several days].  This is because I have so much cooking to do and we usually have to rush through our meal because there are so many people eating [about 30 people] in the house.
Anyway, this dish no doubt a bit 'sinful' [healthwise] but it is a consolation after so many days of hard work and never mind I prepare this only once a year.
Cooked rice
Chinese sausages, waxed duck meat and chicken
Shredded ginger, spring onions and cucumber
[serve 2-3]
500 gm cooked rice [cooked rice enough for 2 pax]
1 drumstick [or 150 gm boneless chicken meat] - sliced and marinated with 1/4 tsp of sesame oil and cornflour
1 Chinese sausage [any type - meat or liver] - sliced
1 pc waxed duck [drumstick or duck breast] - sliced *
* boiled whole piece in boiling water for 5 minutes to reduce the saltiness and fats
a few slices of ginger - cut fine strips
spring onions - cut fine strips
Sauce ingredients in saucepan to be boiled
Sauce Ingredients [Combined and boiled]
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp cooking wine
2 tbsp chicken stock
1/4 tsp each of chicken stock granules, sesame oil and thick soy sauce
Dish before steaming
After steaming with sauce added
  1. Place cooked rice in a casserole or pyrex dish.  Lay the chicken pieces all over the rice, followed by sausages and waxed duck slices.  Top the ingredients with shredded ginger.
  2. Steamed the dish over boiling water for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the sauce ingredients to a boil.  When rice is ready, pour sauce over dish and garnish with spring onions before serving.  Serve immediately.  To serve, mix rice and meat well before scooping onto serving bowl/plate.
Doesn't look delicious [It tastes good also]
Note:  This time, I served this dish with sliced cucumber, chilli sauce and simple Miso Soup.  My neighbour's daugther gave me a tub of Miso [from Japan].  I used it to prepare a simple Miso soup stock with romaine lettuce.
