It's been a very very long time since I last posted due various reasons which saw me stopping blogging altogether. Nevertheless its still a deep passion of mine which I will slowly try to get it slotted back into my weekly schedule from this month onwards.

First of all, I would like to thank all those who continuously visit my blogs and left encouraging words and well wishes. As CNY is just a few days away, I would like to share one of my favourite recipe my mom always prepare during CNY and one I look forward to year after year. No doubt the steamed egg custard with pork recipe is as simple as it gets but somehow the thought of it with steamed rice and some stirred fry vegetables just drives me crazy.


250g Minced Pork - may also use chicken or turkey
1 tsp Light Soy Sauce
1 1/2 tsp CornstachCornstach

1 tbsp GingerGinger
- minced
1 tbsp Green Onions - chopped finely
1/2 tsp Seasme Oil
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Cilantro - chopped finely

Egg Custard Mixture
2 Large EggsLarge Eggs
- beaten
1/2 cup Chicken or Pork Stock
1/4 tsp Vegetable Oil
1/4 tsp Salt to taste
1 tbsp Green Onions - chopped finely

1] Using a bowl, combine the following: pork with light soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper, cilantro, green onion, ginger and cornstarch
2] Mix well then place pork mixture into a steaming flat dish
3] In another bowl, mix the egg mixture ingredients together: eggs, chicken or pork stock, salt, oil and green onion
4] Pour the egg mixture over the meat
5] Remember to skim off any bubbles to ensure a smooth egg custard surface
6] Place dish into a steamer or wok and steam over medium heat for about 10 mins
7] Turn off heat then let the egg custard rest for 5 mins
8] Garnish with the finely chopped cilantro or chopped red chillies

You may also add slices of century egg and salted duck egg but add the yolk part only for the salted duck egg as the white part is just too salty.

Oh yes, I was missing your posts for a while. Everytime I visit, I get to "eat" the spareribs. Egg custard is nice for a change.
Welcome back!

Hi there

I just stumbled accross your blog by using stumbleupon and must say it makes for a good read! There are so many food blogs out there these days that I have lost count! I do like the design of this one though as it is simple and clean which is what I tried to do when I was blogging. I have started a website for bloggers and chefs around the world to meet each other and promote their blogs. I know from blogging myself that even though I had what I thought was great content nobody would ever find it! That is why I started with the hope of 10000s of poeple seeing all our cool photos, videos and recipes. Hope that you enjoy it and looking forward to seeing your stuff there! Keep up the good work here on the blog and hopefully an even bigger audience will see it soon.
