I know this is a recipe question, but does anyone know how to prepare (recipe) for old style Chinese Ham Yu (Ham Yuk). I know it's ground pork, maybe ginger and salted fish. But I don't know what the real ingredients are.
Well, first, it's Eight Immortal Flavors! Here's paraphrased recipe for
Steamed Pork Patty w/Salt Fish:
1-1/2 lb raw pork (not too lean) - chopped fine
4 pcs Saltfish (hom yee) cut 3/4x2 in. Soak & wash in cold water 10 mins. Drain.
2 slices fresh ginger, julienned
In mixing bowl, place chopped pork, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp soy sauce, sprinkle of ground pepper, 1 TB cornstarch -- mix well and transfer to platter, pressing into a patty to fit platter. Place saltfish and ginger evenly over top.
Cook in steamer w/tight fitting lid. Steam at high heat 20-25 mins or until pork is done. Serve w/steamed rice. Serves 3-4.
This makes a whole lot! Easy to halve recipe though. Enjoy!
