Mini Steamed Minced Pork

Friday, November 27, 2009




I had originally planned to cook the usual steamed minced pork , but after receiving calls from two of my sis just minutes before starting to cook dinner, i realised that only three people will be having dinner at home. Thinking to halved the amount of everything for dinner, i did some slight changes to the menu and instead made this mini steamed minced pork.

While preparing the mince pork, my creativity juice starts flowing and i thought to make them into tiny individual portion. This time, as i’m too lazy to do the more complicated method, i remove the egg layer part and just make the pork mince part. This is similar to the earliest recipe handed down in the family.

Anyway, at dinner time, sis was amused with the steamed minced pork in tiny tin foil cases and asked why i did that. And i reply, “ because they look cute and this way, everybody will have their own portion of steamed meat, no more, no less.”
