Steamed eggs with minced meat by Angela Seah Thulin

I know many people prefer silky smooth steamed eggs over this dish (with minced meat), but this is one of my favorite childhood dishes, and something my mum has been serving all these years - even my son knows it! 

My mum would steam it using a stainless steel plate exactly like this. I wanted to do it the same way so I bought such a plate too. After moving to Sweden 3 years ago, i tried to replicate this dish a few times but i never really succeeded achieving the same taste as my mum. But I managed to do it today! You´ll probably not find that it looks appealing but my mum never garnish with anything so this is what it looks like :)

Ingredients -
120g minced pork 
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Few dashes of pepper
- Marinate the above and set aside.

2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp hua diao jiu
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
250ml lukewarm water
1/4 tsp chicken powder
Pinch of salt
A few dashes of pepper

Steps -
1. Marinate the minced pork and set it aside for 30 minutes.
2. In a stainless steel bowl, add the eggs, marinated meat, light soy sauce, sesame oil, hua diao jiu, dark soy sauce, water, chicken powder, salt and pepper and mix well. 
3. Cover with aluminium foil and steam in hot boiling water for 10-15 minutes.
