Silky Smooth Steam Egg Custard with Mince Pork

Posted on: Saturday, March 8, 2008


My boys really love this because it is easy to eat and tasty. I love this because it is so easy to make. It takes less than 15 minutes to prepare, 15 minutes to have it steam and bingo…….. a dish is prepared with all the goodness of the an egg.


Cuisine: Chinese

Serving: 3 pax (if serve as 1 main meal)

Difficulty: Very easy

Time to make: 30 mins (if stock and marinated mince is prepared beforehand)





  • 625ml (2.5cups) Anchovies Stock (to read on how to prepare stock, click here)
  • 150g                   Marinated Mince Pork (to read on how to marinate mince pork, click here)
  •                         Eggs
  • 2 tsp                   Fish Sauce
  • 1tsp                    Corn flour


  1. Anchovies stock.
  2. Marinate mince meat.
  3. Add corn flour into marinated mince meat and mix well.
  4. Boiling water for steaming the egg custard.

1)  2)

3)  4)


  1. Place the marinated mince meat into the steaming bowl.
  2. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add in the fish sauce.
  3. Beat the eggs gently, being careful not to create any bubbles. (This is to prevent air holes from forming at the surface when you have steamed it.)
  4. Pour in the anchovies stock and mix well.
  5. Strain the egg mixture into the steaming bowl with mince meat.
  6. Cover with aluminium foil and place the bowl of egg mixture with mince meat into the wok of boiling water.
  7. Cover and steam on medium fire for 15 mins.

  1. Due to high water content, after 15 mins, it will be wobbly in centre hence looking uncook. Test cook with a skewer. If skewer comes out clean. It is ready.
  2. You may also replace the anchovies stock with any other meat stock.

Can’t wait to try this out, I only make it without meat because every time I did the egg turned old. Going to give this a shot thank you!!

What do you mean by the egg turned old. But do have a lovely time cooking this, don’t worry too much, it will turn out fine the 1st time because it is a rather simple recipe. 🙂

oh…overcooked and looks all old and wrinky =P

i see i see. But dun worry, the trick is not too over steam it. so 15 mins on medium fire will do the trick. and just tr not to create any bubbles when when mixing. 🙂

hey great site!! 🙂 i followed all your instructions especially on how to beat the eggs and it came out really nice! it’s my first time doing this dish and i can say, i’m proud of it. thanks!!

🙂 I am glad that you like it and that it is successful
