Steamed Minced Pork with Light Soy Sauce 蒸肉饼 on 7Mar2017

steamed minced pork in light soy sauce 7mar2017

so we had a most wonderful time together in hong kong 20-24.2.2017, 4 of us OPS primary school buddies.

& one meal that we enjoyed most was at minsheng daipaidong 民声冰室 on 23.2.2017.

one among several great dishes was a very simple (& simply delicious) salted egg steamed minced pork 咸蛋蒸肉饼 (the 2 photos above).

so that is one dish i want to make when i am back home.

the key to this simple to prepare dish are (1) the light soy sauce (2) the minced pork.

i have very good light soy sauce, very “pang” fragrant like minsheng daipaidong 民声冰室.

for the minced pork, i chopped a frozen belly pork on 2.3.2017 & used a fresh ready packet minced pork on 7.3.2017.

the preparation/recipe was simple-

  1. chop chilli, scallions (& some yellow onions – optional, i didn’t add) & mixed with 300g minced pork. i put the scallion on one side as one friend does not eat scallions.
  2. add 1 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp olive oil & 1tbsp corn flour to minced pork & mix well
  3. make a depression on the minced pork(as in photo above) to hold the egg yolk. my opinion is the salted egg contribute little to the dish. so i replaced with fresh egg which is healthier but also contributed little to the dish except a nice volcano presentation, and i always like the silky egg yolk, no effort so no harm to have it.
  4. add 1 to 1.5 tbsp (to taste) light soy sauce & 1 tbsp olive oil & steam minced pork for about 12mins.
  5. 1 min before completion, crack one egg, drop the egg white in the plate by the side of the minced pork, and the egg yoke on the depression to receive the egg yoke.
  6. garnish with coriander.

my friends commented during a 8pax dinner on 7.3.2017 that the dish was almost the standard of minsheng daipaidong 民声冰室.

i think the light soy sauce was almost as good, the ready minced pork not as good texture, & even taste???

earlier i experimented the dish. there was no minced pork in the fridge, so i hand-chopped a defrosted belly pork. i think the hand-chopped frozen pork was better actually.

hand-chopped has a rougher, uneven texture which i like better, and somehow even though it was a frozen meat, it actually went very well with the marinade.

anyhow this was really easy to do, and a true comfort food that is most endearing & yet so easy to prepare.
