I love to consume, observe, understand, discover, research (and so on) about the greatness of food. At the moment I'm still trying to master recipes from my mother/grandma and YouTube food gurus; but hopefully soon enough I'll be able to make up my own and share them with you! FYI, I'm quite a nutrient freak...so on my own, I'm constantly making sure all the colourful nutrients are in the bowl, then I season it a little according to the flavour so that my tastebuds stay happy.

A (kind-of) recreation of my childhood memories accompanied by white and black rice plus broccoli.
I remember vividly this very dish that my grandma would make me as a kid every Saturday evening. A combination of two famous Chinese cuisines: steamed minced pork (usually with mushrooms, salt egg and ginger) and steamed egg with a dash of fresh, light shallots. Taking a bowl full of steamy rice, I would rush to the dining table and grab spoonfuls of pork and egg. Good times.
My tastebuds had a sudden craving for it this morning and since I still had some leftover marinated minced pork mixture (see my previous Chinese steamed pork buns post), I was determined to attempt this dish for the first time.
Hope you like my version of Chinese steamed minced pork and egg!
*Due to difference in steaming method and stovetop heat level, the steaming duration may vary.
Improvements for next time!
My first successful chinese cuisine! Yay! Ok so maybe it doesn't look that good, but according to my friend, it's "Soooo gooood!!" And I agree! Double thumbs up! The entire recipe (see below) made 18 cute palm-sized pork buns.
I followed wantanmien's recipe but made some changes on the way according to personal preference. See if you can spot the difference!
Also, unless you're sharing them with a lot of people at once, you'll definitely have leftovers. Isn't it always nice to know that there are some leftover home-made buns in the fridge the next morning? (*dreamy satisfying smile*)
As tasty as it was, here are some improvements I would do for next time!
