For starters, a salted duck egg is very salty, so if you never use salt in cooking or have to limit your salt intake you will want to take a miss on this recipe. This recipe was originally written using a raw salted duck egg, which I have never seen, only the had boiled variety, but I will explain how to use each type. This is a very common Chinese dish, on my to cook list.

For the Marinade
Use this if using a hard boiled salted egg
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Mix the pork with all the marinade ingredients except the duck egg, water, and corn starch, stir the pork vigorously in one direction only. It is recommended to use a sturdy pair of chopsticks to do this. Then add the corn starch and mix that in well, stirring in the same direction as before.
  2. Slowly add enough room temperature water while stirring, yep, you guessed it, in the same direction as before. until the pork is light and fluffy. Let mixture marinate for 10 minutes or so.
  3. Heat up your steamer to boiling. Pat the pork mixture into a serving dish or plate that will fit in your steamer, you want the mixture to be about 3/4 of an inch thick.
  4. If using the raw salted egg, crack the egg over the pork patty putting the yolk in the center. Using a pair of plate lifters, carefully place the plate or dish into the steamer, cover and steam for 18 minutes. Remove from the steamer.
  5. If using a hard boiled salted egg, just place the dish or plate into the steamer without any egg on top, cover and steam for 18 minutes. While the patty is steaming, mix together the diced egg, tomatoes, and onion in a small bowl. When the patty is cooked and removed from the steamer, spoon the egg mixture over the top of the patty.
  6. Typically how this type of dish is served, the plate or dish with the patty is simply placed in the center of the table, the diners each have a plate of rice, and people just scoop up what they would like.
Recipe Notes

For the salted duck egg, these sell for 13 Baht each. The pork would be about 35 Baht/250 grams. For 3 servings, this is about 47 cents per serving.

Two ingredients, and your rice cooker does the work. This would make a good lunch or a even a light dinner. This is about as simple as a recipe gets. I made this on 4 July 2017 and is perfect for a light dinner.

Instructions
  1. Just prep the rice by rinsing as you would normally do and add to your rice cooker pot. Add water as you would do normally. I use a small 1 liter rice cooker for testing recipes, rice used was 2 cups of a rice blend my wife hand on hand, white rice with just a hint of dried diced vegetable in it.
  2. Rinse off the sausages and place onto the rice in water. This will flavor the rice slightly. Turn the rice cooker on.
  3. When the rice cooker switches to warm, the rice will be cooked and the sausage perfectly steamed.
  4. Scoop some rice onto a place, and cut the sausages about 1/4 inch thick and place on the side of the rice. As easy as that.
Recipe Notes

The sausages will cost about 100 Baht for 4, this is a very approximate cost. For 4 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.
