Steamed tofu with minced pork

Steamed tofu with minced pork

I was running out of dishes to prepare for dinner and was getting tired of cooking the same old dishes.

Fortunately with the help of social media, I managed to jump start my interest and got all excited again. I came across this site from FB called It is an initiative by NTUC Fairprice which I find is very useful for amateurs like me. It consists of a lot of nice recipes ranging from local dishes to Western cuisines in all very achievable steps done mainly via videos. The video captures the essence of cooking in very easy steps.

I started off with a very simple dish of steamed tofu with minced pork.

All you need are:

A tube of egg tofu
Some minced pork
(I mixed the pork with some minced prawns, water chestnuts and chopped spring onions)
Chopped spring onions - 2 sets

 Chopped water chestnut

Minced pork

Tofu ready for meat topping

Soy sauce
Sesame oil
Some pepper

Oyster sauce mixed with some water and corn flour
  • Marinate pork with the seasonings and set aside for 10min
  • Cut the tube tofu into even sizes and lay on a flat plate
  • Cut out a small hole on top of each tofu
  • Put a tsp of marinated pork on top of each tofu
  • Drizzle the oyster sauce mixed with water on the dish
  • Steam for 10-15min till meat is cooked
  • Remove from steamer and drizzle some sesame oil and sprinkle some spring onions (add some fried shallots if desired)
  • Serve with rice
