Steamed tofu with minced pork


I wanted a simple dish for dinner tonight and here it is! :D Fuss-free and nutritious dish!


*Have to keep my post short due to time constraint*


Steamed tofu with minced pork

Ingredients:
  • 1 pack of tofu (for steaming)
  • 1 handful of minced pork
  • 1 handful of mixed veggies
  • 3 shallots (sliced thinly)
  • oyster sauce

Marinate minced pork with:
  • oyster sauce
  • hua diao jiu
  • ground white pepper
  • cornflour

Method:
  1. Remove tofu from packaging and steam it for 5minutes.
  2. Fry the shallots till golden brown. Drain and set aside. Dish out some of the shallot oil, leaving some behind to fry the minced pork.
  3. Add in the minced pork and keep frying to ensure that there are no big lumps of pork.
  4. When minced pork is almost cooked, add the mixed veggies.
  5. Add oyster sauce to taste (you can add a little more than usual because the minced pork will be eaten with the bland tofu).
  6. Top tofu with fried minced pork.
  7. Drizzle shallot oil on the dish then top with the crispy shallots.
  8. Serve hot.
*You may add diced prawn and minced water chestnut to enhance the texture and taste of this dish but I didn't have those ingredients with me today.



Alicia still doesn't like tofu, but she loved the rest of the dish and she ate quite a bit of rice mixed with minced pork, the shallot oil, some of the mixed veggies and chopped french beans from the other dish. :D I think she just likes the shallot oil! lol.
