Golden Egg Steamed Tofu

Normally I do not cook on weekends as this is the time for me to catch up with chores that I failed to do during the weekdays. However, today I have been inspired to cook dinner for the family after reading a post on a simple yet delicious dish. The new twist of adding salted duck egg and egg to the steamed tofu really made this dish special. Thanks Honey Bee Sweets for posting it.

Family loves it and it is definately a nice change from the normal steamed tofu or steamed silky eggs that I made.

Golden Egg Steamed Tofu

Ingredients :
1 salted egg yolk
1 egg
1 block of soft tofu
200g minced meat
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 tbsp cooking oil

Seasoning A:
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp corn flour
dash of pepper
100ml water

Seasoning B:
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
dash of pepper

Some fried shallots
Some chopped spring onion

Method :
  1. Hard boil the salted egg. Remove the egg yolk from the white. Mash the egg yolk while it is still warm. Mix it together with the egg and Seasoning A.
  2. In a wok, add cooking oil and stir fry garlic till fragrant. Add in minced meat and stir fry till almost cooked. Pour in Seasoning B to the meat and cook till done. Dish out and set aside.
  3. Place the soft tofu in a dish with at least 1" depth. Slit the tofu into cubes (to allow the other ingredients to incorporate into the tofu). Pour the egg mixture into the dish. Steam tofu & egg for 8 minutes at high fire or till cooked.
  4. Remove tofu from steamer and sprinkle with minced meat, fried shallots and spring onion all over. Serve hot with steam rice.
