Steamed Egg Tofu with Pork Recipe

If you do not consume egg, you can replace the egg tofu with white silken tofu. You can also replace pork with chicken.

Serves: 2-3

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins


(A) Marinade

  • 1/2 stalk spring onion finely chopped
  • a few thin carrot slices stacked the slices together and chop them finely
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • dash of white pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Shaoxing wine


  1. Arrange tofu pieces on a deep steaming plate.
  2. Marinade minced pork with (A) and combine well in a small bowl and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Mould a small amount of the marinaded meat mixture (about 1 tsp or less) into a ball and place on top of tofu slices. Top each meat ball with a wolfberry. Drizzle 1/2 tbsp light soy over the tofu slices.
  4. Steam over high heat for about 5 minutes (starting from the time the water in steamer is boiling), or until the meat is cooked. Before serving, use a spoon to drizzle the soy liquid collected in the plate over the tofu slices. Garnish with spring onions.

Recipe Variations

  • Water Chestnuts: For more crunch, you can add 1 fresh water chestnut, peeled and roughly chopped and added to (A).
  • Chopped Prawns (shrimps): You can also add 1 to 2 prawns flesh, chopped finely, added to (A).

      I’m not sure because I’m based in Singapore. But you can try those Asian grocery stores.

    I tried to cook for my very first time. The meat on top turned grey and really hard. Followed exactly wonder sad it tasted mild too! I think I did something wrong somewhere! How do I get softer meat?
