Steamed Minced Meat With Salted Eggs

An easy steamed meat dish which is common in most Chinese homes and economy food stalls.
The original recipe uses 3 types of eggs. Since I’m cooking a smaller portion, I omit the century egg.  This dish is still tasty and good served with rice for dinner. Here, I’m sharing the original recipe for your easy reference.
Recipe Source – Hawkers’ Flair Simplified 
Ingredients
50 gm minced meat
3 eggs – lightly beaten
1 century egg - diced
1 salted egg yolk – diced
1 salted egg white
150 ml hot water
½ tsp salt
Dash of pepper and chicken stock granules
Some chopped spring onions
Some fried crispy garlic
1 tsp light soy sauce
  1. Combine meat, eggs, seasoning and water in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Pour into a 8 inch round steaming tray.
  3. Steam at medium heat for about 10 minutes or until set.
  4. Remove, sprinkle spring onions, fried garlic and light soy sauce.
This will be my last for the time being as I will be away for a short vocation until end month.

This is my kind of food. Love the salted egg in the minced meat. Great with plain congee.

Kimmy, this is a simple yet tasty dish! My mum used to cook something quite similar when I was a kid. Enjoy your holiday!

Hi Veronica, salted eggs are my favourite with nasi lemak, porridge, fried noodles etc. They are so tasty. Adds flavour to this steamed meat.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, yes my mum is still cooking this dish almost once a week using eggs and minced meat with some fats. Quick and easy dish to prepare. I'm looking forward to this holiday to relax a bit after a hectic Dec/Jan.

Thanks Soke Hah, with the festive season over and other chores/duties done, now it's time for myself to spend some carefree days with friend and my hubby away from home.

Kimmy,
I rarely cook with salted eggs as my big kids don't fancy them. Occasionally boiled salted eggs to go with white porridge. But funny, they liked prawns with salted egg yolks that we tried outside.
Well, enjoy your holiday ^-^!

Hi Mabel, thanks for visiting my humble blog everyday. It's really inspirational to us to try recipes and share our experiences. I'll be back asap. Take care.

Hi Karen, is it that your kids didn't know there is salted egg in the dish? Honestly, I realised people are a funny lot. It's their perception of things, food etc. Some people can except change easily and some people don't like to venture....Just like my niece, she can eat curry or spicy food but will not take a shred of chilli. She like french fries but not potatoes cooked other ways.

Hi Joyce, just back from my holiday. Great relaxation and didn't want to use too much of the electronic gadgets while away. Back now, I'll concentrate on having home cooked food and catching up with all blogger friends until my next holiday.......

Madeline said...

Kimmy said...

Hi Madeline, yes we did have a great relaxing time. No cooking, no household chores and no working. Just visiting places and eating as much as we can, hehehe!.

Hi Kimmy I would like to ask u what kind of oven is good for baking. The only exception with top n bottom heat one good.

lclim said...

Hi Kimmy would like to ask u about oven. Is it one with top n bottom heat one good. Is Elba brand oven good

Kimmy said...

Hi LClim, I bought Elba built-in oven 20 over years ago. It was good for 2 decades but I couldn't get it repaired even by Fiamma. I bought the table top Elba convectional oven cos' the functions/features are very basic [w top & bottom heat] and reasonable price. So far so good. Choosing an oven depends on individual's requirements like capacity, space and cost. If it is to prepare food for own consumption one with more than 28L capacity should be sufficient.

lclim said...

Hi Kimmy thank you so much for the info. I will go for Elba oven. Have a nice weekend. Thanks again.
