Steamed tofu with minced pork
1 tube white tofu
4-5 tablespoons minced pork
2 teaspoons corn flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon chicken stock powder
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Green peas, carrots or wolfberries for garnishing
1.Cut the tofu into medallions about 1.5 cm thick.
2.Mix corn flour, salt, pepper, sesame oil and a little water with minced pork
3.Arrange tofu on a plate, put 1 heaped teaspoon of minced pork on top of each medallion, gently press down and shape them.
4.Decorate with green peas, chopped or julienned carrots or wolfberries.
5.Mix chicken stock powder with one tablespoon water and dribble along the sides of tofu, not on the pork (don't worry about it being too concentrated as the steam that evaporates during steaming will dilute it to become a light 'gravy' to flavour the bland tofu).
6. Steam for 10-15 minutes.
7.Serve hot with rice.
