Abalone Tofu & Minced Chicken Dish

It has been awhile since my last post. Took a short trip to Grampians during the spring break.
My fave pic from the trip! You guys should go visit the place if you have the chance to =)

Anyways, back to the food! There are actually two methods of cooking this dish and it's up to you to choose how you want to do it.

To serve 3-4, you need:
a. 350g-400g minced chicken
b. 2 tubes of egg tofu-sliced
c. Abalone Sauce (i use New Moon's but am sure any other brand is also acceptable)

Marinate the minced chicken with:
a. 1 tbsp sesame oil
b. 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
c. a dash of pepper

Steaming Method:
Remember to prepare the steamer before hand. Then in a bowl, place the marinated minced chicken first followed by the sliced egg tofu on top of it. Pour abalone sauce generously over the ingredients and proceed to steam it for 20-25 minutes.

Note: Use a bowl because there will be some gravy when it's done. =)

Stir-fry Method:
Heat the wok and fry the marinated minced chicken till it is half-cooked. Add the sliced egg tofu and pour abalone sauce generously over ingredients. Then add 2-3 tbsp of water (depending on how much gravy you want) and let everything simmer for about 15 minutes.

Variation: Add some shiitake mushrooms if you like! Also, try replacing Abalone Sauce with Oyster Sauce for a different flavour.

All you need is a bowl of steaming hot rice and your lunch/dinner is settled! Enjoy. =)
