Steam Food - Weekend Lunch

Postby hdbtaitai8 » Fri Jun 26, 2009 2:15 pm

Hi Hi

Anyone got any ideas how to cook a simple meal using steam method?
I have been trying to cook (save $) during weekend for lunch or dinner using the above method for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Tried the following -
(1) steam beancurd with minced meat on top and add a bit of oyster sauce.
(2) steam chicken drumsticks for the kids
(3) steam brocolli/carrots/potatoes
(4) steam medium prawns then dip in thousand island dressing or tomatoes sauces for the kids
(5) steam fish with ginger and sour plum.

Any ideas will be welcome!
Cheers, hdbtaitai8

Steam soya sauce chicken wings (separate mid joints and drumletts).
Marinate the chicken with sesame oil, grated ginger, grated garlic, sugar and light soya sauce. Overnight in fridge or at least an hour.
Before steaming, add 1 tablespoonful of cooking wine, 2 tablespoonfuls of water and a tablespoonful of dark soya sauce.
Mixed well and steam.


Steam Pumpkin mash dessert served with ginko nuts and coconut cream
Remove skin, cut into cubes and steam with healthy sprinkle of sugar.
Mashed well, add in ginko nuts (I use canned version) and serve with a drizzle of coconut cream.


Steam fresh sotong whole. When done, cut into rings, serve with plum dipping sauce.

Enjoy....

Hi, Try

-Steam cod fish with just light soya sauce and a dash of pepper(optional)
a few thin slices of ginger

-Steam yam(small cube)/raddish(thin strips) cake- 3 bowls of rice flour (not glutinous rice flour), 2.5 or 3 bowl of water, mushroom, dried small shrimp, add salt to taste.
You can cut it into slices and fried it.

-Steam eggs, 1 salted egg, 1 century egg(optional) and 2 eggs. 1 cup of water.

very simple dish. only take you a while to prepare.

You can check from the web for " steam food"/ "healthy steam food".

If you want more, can steam japanese sweet potato for tea break.

Steamed egg with dofu and minced meat

Just mash the dofu with the minced meat and beat the eggs. Add in a little seasoning to steam.

it's those dried red coloured berries available from EYS or medical halls. it adds some sweetness to the dish.
