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.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
