Steamed Egg with Ground Pork Topping

This dish was actually pretty challenging for me since I don't have any proper kitchenware to make steamed food.
Amazingly, I assembled a cooking device by using a big stewing pot, one ramekin, and a baking dish.
The ramekin served as the base inside the frying pan,
And of course the baking dish became my giant lid that prevent the heat to slip off.
Here you go, one giant homemade steaming kitchenware.
What a genius.
Don't try this at home though.

Steamed Egg with Ground Pork Topping-


6 eggs
1 cup of chicken stock
1 cup of water
About 2 handful of ground pork (slightly less than one pound)
3 medium shallot (diced)
Soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
Brown sugar
Extra virgin olive oil


Beat together the eggs, one cup of chicken stock, and one cup of water till well blended.
Add about two pinches of salt into the mixture and stir well.
Steam it for about 20 minutes, or until the middle part is cooked through.

Prepare a frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and toss in the chopped shallots.
Cook till slightly brown on the edges, about 2 minutes,
Add the ground pork. Cook for another 2 minutes,
Now we pour about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and some freshly ground pepper.
Just keep cooking till all the sauce is fully absorbed by the pork.

When the steamed egg is ready, simply spray the ground pork on the top,
You won't believe how silky the steamed egg is, along with flavored pork,
Ahhhhh, give me more rice!

  1. I absolutely love this dish. Reminds me of home. But usually the ground pork is inside the egg.
    Creative arrangement for steaming :)
