This is an authentic and traditional Cantonese home-style dish. It's a recipe mostly passed on within families, and it is rare to find this dish in any restaurants. Trust me though, it is VERY good. It's actually intentionally salty tasting, so it goes very well with white rice.
Salty eggs are also called a Haam Daan - you can find them at all Chinese shops.
very good!! I can't believe I found a recipe for this. My mother's recipe was "a dash of this, a dash of that". I never figured it out. This tastes almost as good as mom's was. Only thing different was I used 2 salted eggs (my mom's homemade) and stirred it raw into the pork, instead of hard boiling first. I'll be making this again. - 22 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Nice, clear instructions. I agree with the other person, definately use 2 eggs, and just use them raw. I soaked and finely chopped some 4-5 chinese dried mushrooms to add to the mix and they were great - gave it a bit more "crunch". I think a small amount of black fungus could also do the trick - just soak them in cold water for a few minutes then finely chop and add to the mix. - 21 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Note that there are two kinds of salted eggs available for sale. Some are already boiled, so follow these directions. If you can find the ones that are not already cooked, go ahead and mix the white part with a regular egg. Save the yolk. Make a depression in the center of the meat after you place it in the bowl to be steamed. Place the salted egg yolk in the depression you made. Steam as directed. Enjoy. - 08 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
