This common Chinese household steamed minced pork with salted egg is a quick fix comforting dish with simple ingredients especially for busy mothers. What I normally do is to break up the whole salted egg, mix with minced pork and steam the dish. This time around, I just placed the salted egg yolk on top and mixed half a tablespoon of lightly beaten egg white into the minced pork. It is delicious and fragrant with some chilli and ginger We ended up finishing the whole dish with extra rice.
