Chinese Steamed Eggs With Minced Meat


4 Large Eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
3 to 4 Shallots, thinly sliced
100g minced Chicken or Pork
1 Tbsp Shaoxing Wine
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
A few Dashes of Ground White Pepper
Sea Salt, to taste
2 Cups of Chicken Stock

2 to 3 tsp of Light Soy Sauce
2 Scallions, chopped


Heat a wok or pan over high heat. Then add peanut oil and shallots. Saute the shallots until lightly brown.

Add the minced meat and cook briefly. Then add white pepper, wine and light soy sauce. Stir-fry until the meat is fully cooked. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Combine the beaten eggs, chicken stock and season with sea salt and white pepper. Pour the mixture into the meat mixture thru a sieve.

Steam over a medium heat for 2 minutes, then continue steaming over low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the eggs are set. To serve, top the steamed eggs with some light soy sauce, ground white pepper and chopped scallions.
