Steamed Egg Tofu with Minced Meat

My nieces and my children like this dish very much during our Mid-autumn family gathering. It is easy to prepare.

Ingredients :


- 1 soft tofu (mashed)
- 8 eggs (beat)
- 2 tablespoons of water
- salt and pepper (to taste)
Toppings : (measurement depending on individual's preferences)
- Minced meat (marinated with preserved tung choy, vegetarian oyster sauce and sugar)
- 1 tablespoon of finely chopped preserved radish (tung choy)
- vegetarian oyster sauce
- sugar
- garlic (finely chopped)
- soy sauce

Method :

1) Boil water in a steamer.

2) Beat eggs with salt, pepper and water with mashed tofu.

3) Transfer the mixture to a deep plate or bowl.

4) Place the plate (the mixture) in a steamer when the water in the steamer has come to a boil.

5) Reduce heat to low and steam for about 15 to 20 minutes.

6) Meanwhile, heat oil in a wok. Add garlic and saute until aromatic. Then, add marinated minced meat and stir fry until aromatic. If too dry, add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of water and give it a quick stir. Dish out and set aside.

7) When the egg mixture is ready, remove from the steamer.

8) Pour the stir fried minced meat over the steamed egg tofu.

9) If you like, add soy sauce (to taste) on top and serve.
