Steamed Minced Meat With Tofu & Salted Eggs Patties

Original recipe used preserved vegetables mixed together with the meat
My kids don't fancy the veggies, so I changed to salted eggs
Yummy dish - best eaten with hot fluffy rice :)

What you need:

1 square piece pressed tofu
150g minced meat (I used pork)
salted egg yolk (with a little egg whites) OR 2 tbsp preserved vegetables

1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil

Mash tofu and mix with minced meat, including the seasoning
(if using preserved vegetables, chop half  and add in the meat mixture)
Stir well til sticky
If using preserved vegetables -> lay the other half of the vegetables in a steaming dish and pour the minced meat mixture over it and press down onto the dish, steam on high heat for 20minutes
If using salted eggs -> pour the meat mixture into the steaming dish and put salted egg yolk on top (arrange with some distance), pour 1 tbsp of salted egg white over each yolk, steam on high heat for 20minutes

*Please do not attempt to use both salted eggs and preserved vegetables - it'll be way too salty
*You may soak the preserved veggies before cooking to reduce the saltiness
*Meat with a little fat will be more tender in texture when it's cooked
