The Ingredients:

  • ¼ pound grounded pork
  • 4 eggs (number of eggs dependent on metal plate size)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Corn starch
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Green Onion
  • Water or Chicken Broth (amount dependent on metal plate size)


Special Notes:

  • Can also use a salted egg too by adding the salted egg yolk only after placing all the eggs in the plate. However, nowadays, raw duck salted egg yolks aren’t sold in the US, I purchased cooked ones and just broke the yolk into little pieces and put it in.
  • If you like sesame flavor, you can always add a little bit of sesame oil. Know that a little sesame oil goes a long way.
  • For better flavor, you can substitute Chicken Broth or Miso Broth for the Water.


  • Put ¼ pound grounded pork into metal plate
  • Add a little salt, a little corn starch and very little olive oil on pork (If you want a more flavorful pork, you may also season with soy sauce and sesame oil)
  • Mix the pork, salt, corn starch and olive oil
  • Grab a bowl, for every 2 eggs, add 3/4 cup of water in the bowl and stir. Add a little salt, a little soy sauce and mix. (If you want more flavorful eggs, you can substitute chicken broth for the water, I also season the broth with salt, soy sauce and sesame oil)
  • Make enough eggs to fill up the plate
  • Add a little green onion (When the egg is a almost done, add more green onion on top)

  • Boil water in a wok or pot with a metal steamer holder
  • After it boils, turn to medium heat and place plate for 35-40 minutes
  • Place chopsticks at the end of each side on the wok/pot cover to hold up the cover, this is the secret to the eggs smooth texture.
  • Taste, add salt or soy sauce if needed
