Time: ~40 mins
Serving : 2-3 serves


  • 100g minced pork
  • 200g silken tofu
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp chicken powder
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp mirin seasoning
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp chilli oil (optional)


  1. Marinate the minced pork with sugar, salt, white pepper, chicken powder, corn starch, mirin seasoning, oyster sauce, sesame oil and soy sauce for 15 minutes.
  2. Slice the tofu width-wise into 2 cm thick slices.
  3. Put tofu on a flat bowl or plate, approx. 2-3 cm deep.
  4. Place the marinated pork on top of the sliced tofu.
  5. Put minced garlic and chilli oil evenly on the pork.
  6. Add 1 litre of water to a wok or pot. Bring the water to boil over a high heat.
  7. Reduce the heat to medium and carefully place a steaming rack (or steaming basket) into the wok, and add the pork and tofu.

  • You can expect to see a watery sauce with the tofu after steaming. This is normal so don’t worry. Simply scoop as much or as little out as you like.
  • If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, the chilli oil is optional.
