Simple Steamed Egg Tofu




Steaming is one of my favorite method in preparing food. It's not only a healthy cooking method which less or no oil is used, but it is also the easiest way to prepare a simple home cooked dish. Here is the simple dish that I experimented, and it turned out to be a satisfying outcome.

Ingredients:

1 roll Japanese tofu

(A) Mixed well

150g minced pork
2 caps dried mushroom, soaked, remove stalk, and chopped
1 tbsp of chopped spring onion
1/2 tsp cornflour
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1.5 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp fermented beans, chopped
dashed of pepper

Gravy:

1.5 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp water

Method:

1. Cut tofu into thick round slices.

2. Divide (A) into small balls and place in the centre of the tofu.

3. Pour the gravy on top of the balls.

4. Steam tofu for 10 minutes and serve hot.
