Steamed meat patty

This really should have been included in my earlier Cantonese food post.

Steamed meat patty or yoke bang is the quintessential Cantonese dish but you wouldn't find this in fancy Cantonese restaurants cos this is what our mother's cook at home. This is what I grew up eating. My mother even used the same stainless steel plates that you see in the picture.

She usually steams the salted fish separately on top of the meat patty with slices of ginger but I kind of prefer it done this way.

Steamed meat patty

350g minced pork
5-6 water chestnuts
half onion, diced
3-4 cloves of garlic, diced
salted fish, diced
sesame oil
soy sauce
salt & pepper

1. Put all the ingredients together in a bowl & mix well

2. Place in a shallow tray & steam until meat is cooked. Served with rice

My mom used to make us this too - and on a steel plate as well :-).
