Steamed mince pork with oysters and water chestnuts


When I bought some dried oysters from the grocers, I asked the shopkeeper what other dishes can be prepared with oysters, other than making soup or braised with pig trotters.  He suggested that I steam them with some mince pork and water chestnuts, and said that  this is a highly recommended Cantonese dish.  Although I'm Cantonese, but this is the first time that I'm trying this out and must admit that it does taste good!




mince pork, chopped water chestnuts and dried oysters, all mixed together with cornflour, salt, etc ......



Easy, quick and simple to prepare.



Garnish with chopped spring onions and coriander.



Tasty and a bit crunchy because of the water chestnuts.

  4. Hi
    Thanks, Kristy. I had to rope in my 'sifu' to help me out to get rid of the extra spacing after the last pic. She's a gem of a friend. As I've said before my IT knowledge is very limited and can be blur at times.
