This was one of my childhood favorite dish. But mom used to cook this with store bought egg bean curd, pan fried it then topped with minced meat and gravy. I used to cook like her method too until I found the way to make egg bean curd at home.
You may not believe how simple it is to make egg bean curd at home. I can assured you, it is as simple as ABC. Just 2 main ingredients - Eggs and Soy Milk. Made with fresh and natural ingredients, clean, no preservative and no added coloring. Click here for simple homemade egg bean curd recipe.
However, I always ended up with ugly looking egg bean curd on the final product because I failed to remove it from the dish and couldn't slice it nicely. So I thought of a smarter way to do it lol...Just leave it in the dish after steamed, add minced meat toppings! I omit the pan frying with oil spattering in my kitchen, it's actually a healthier version too.
In this blog, I only include the ratio of minced meat and dried shrimps. There's no exact measurement for the seasoning because I actually didn't measure each of the ingredients. I never cook the same amount each time. For any of you who want to try this recipe, keep every ingredients in minimal amount as the dried shrimp itself is already quite flavorful. Otherwise, your minced meat toppings may turn out too salty.
