Steamed Pork Slices with Bean Paste

Thursday, October 14, 2010


Grandaunt used to make a lot of steamed dishes. Only steamed pork and she has loads and loads of recipes. This is one of them that I love to eat.

The gravy is very, very nice with rice.


Steamed Pork Slices with Bean Paste Recipe

200gm pork fillet or other soft meat (You may use chicken meat if prefered)
2 tsp hot bean paste (or substitute with 1 tsp finely chopped chilli and 1 ½ tsp regular brown bean paste)
1 tsp sugar
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cooking oil

1. Thinly slice pork fillet.
2. Put bean paste, garlic, water and sugar onto pork and mix well.
3. Put in cornstarch and mix. Finally add in oil.
4. Let the pork marinate for at least half an hour before cooking.
5. Steam on high heat for 10-15 minutes. I prefer pork to be very well done, so I do it on 15.

I'm running out of ideas for homecooked dishes. This one is so delicious and simple to cook. Bookmarked!

This one looks delicious. Very appetizing too :) Thanks for sharing another simple yet delicious dish. I have bookmarked this :)

My grandma will always cook steamed spare ribs this way with normal bean paste and bird's eyes chili which I loved most. Will try using hot bean paste next round and see the difference. :)

My grandma also used to do a similar dish! I have completely forgotten about it until I saw yours.
It is a simple yet delicious dish!

HKChoo,
Yeah, healthy and less mess in the kitchen :)



Small Small Baker,
Hope u will like this



Elin,
I can eat a lot of rice with this dish :)
Hope you and ur hubby will like this



Belly Good Cooking,
It might not taste the same, as all bean paste taste different according to different manufacturers. I used this to save work on chopping chillies.



Busygran,
This is actually an old fashioned dish :)
If your grandma made this, Gosh, then it's got to be really long ago.
There are a lot of yummy old fashioned dishes that are almost forgotten... we should revive them :)

oo yes, there are so many ways to steam pork and they are so tasty with rice!

I've noticed that you like to use LeeKumKee a lot hor...I've only used the oyster sauce.
I have two pieces of the "front-leg-muscles" in my fridge(sorry dunno how to call them), you think can be used to make this ar?

This was great. I love dishes which are steamed. Because the pork has enough fat I did 1/2 the oil and instead of using water only I did add a bit of Chinese cooking wine. I had to stop my husband (well, myself as well) from eating too much of it.

Meldylocks,
Those muscles ah, I'm not sure, but you can try. Muscles are usually tougher.



Anonymous,
Gald you liked it. I used lean pork, so, you can definately reduce the oil if yours is fatty.

Did this dish yesterday but I didn't end up with all that sauce. Strange....

Thanks for a great blog.

Johan,
Frankly, I find once frozen pork to have more gravy when cooked compared to fresh unfrozen ones.
Hope u liked the dish.

Hi Wendy, I followed your recipe and turned out great & full of gravy. The serving plate was almost as clean as a cleaned plate after we finished eating. We love it. Thank you so much for sharing.
