Steamed Tung Choi Pork 冬菜蒸猪肉
I had a packet of minced pork which was originally intended for making dumplings but I was feeling too lazy and could not summon up the energy nor the enthusiasm to make dumplings today. I did not feel inclined to do much cooking either. So I dug into the refrigerator to see what's suitable to be cooked with the minced pork and which must be easy to prepare as well.
I decided to steam the minced pork with tung choi (冬菜), which is a type of preserved garlicky vegetable, usually added into soups or porridge for the extra zing.
Mind you, the tung choi is salty. So do not add too much.
250g minced pork
3 tsp tung choi
1 tsp cornflour
6 tsp water
1/2 tsp soya sauce
1 tsp sugar
dash of sesame oil
1. Chop the tung choi and mix evenly with the minced pork.
2. Dissolve the cornflour with the water and add to the minced pork mixture.
3. Add in the rest of the seasoning and mix well.
4. Place into a shallow heat-proof plate or bowl and steam over boiling water for about 12 to 15 minutes.
