Chinese Steamed Beef & Egg Omelette



4 portion(s)

Steamed Beef & Egg Omelette

  • 45 grams Rump/Steak, cubed
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 --- water, MC
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornflour
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce/tamari
  • 1 teaspoon dry sherry/port/Chinese cooking wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • salt & pepper

Recipe's preparation

  1. Put cubed meat into Closed lid. Turbo 2-3 times until fine. Scrape down sides of Closed lid

    Add all other ingredients.

    Mix Speed 4 for 6 seconds on Counter-clockwise operation to combine.

    Put into heatproof dish (ceramic bowl is best) that has been smeared with oil (helps to prevent the egg from sticking to the bowl once cooked). The bowl should be able to fit into the Varoma dish.

    Put into Varoma dish on top of chopsticks. This allows the steam to circulate. (I snap wooden take-away chopsticks to fit).

    Add 1 litre water to Closed lid. Cook 20 minutes Varoma Speed 3-4.

    After 20 minutes, stir egg mixture with a fork. (This will break it up but also aids even cooking).

    Add rice to the steaming basket, top up water to 1 litre,  while continuing to cook the omelette in the Varoma dish for another 15 minutes speed 4 at Varoma temperature.

    If you choose not to do rice, continue to steam the omelette at Varoma temperature for 15 minutes but reduce to speed 3 so that it doesn't cook too quickly (it will be rubbery).

    Sprinke soy sauce on top before serving.

    This is usually served as one of several dishes at a Chinese meal. See my recipe for Stir Fry Beef & Vegetables. You can use one slice of rump for both these dishes.

    Only 45g. It's more for the flavor. You can put more if you like, and then there will be more texture in the omelette. If you have someone who really needs to 'see' the meat you can use more and don't mince it too fine. Good luck.

    Does this recipe really only call for 45g steak or should it be 450g?
