  1. This looks like something I should try! I always have lots of leftover bananas which I do not know what to do with. Must be superdelicious with so much banana in it!

    You can add a topping of icing sugar and lime juice, or just dust with some icing sugar.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!
