Steamed Minced Pork With 3 Types of Eggs 三蛋蒸肉碎

Steamed Minced Pork With 3 Types of Eggs 三蛋蒸肉碎

I was at the market choosing oranges when I overheard three ladies talking about this dish. One
of the ladies was teaching her two friends how to make this steamed minced pork with three different types of eggs. No precise weights and measurements were mentioned. However, she described in detailed how to go about preparing this dish. I overheard the whole conversation!  

After paying for the oranges, I happily walked down a few more stalls to buy a small packet of minced pork. I already have century eggs and salted eggs in my pantry. Fresh eggs is a staple which I frequently replenish in my fridge. So I have all the ingredients to try out this dish which sounded interesting. Three types of eggs all in one dish!. 

I jotted down the weights and measurements of each ingredient used. I am sharing the result of my effort here. It was very simple to do and it's tasty.

2 eggs
1 century egg, cut into cubes
1 salted egg, cut the egg yolk into cubes
6 tbsp water
