Sibu Food : Steamed Egg
Steamed egg is one of the mainstays of many families meals for as long as I remember. It is an all time favourite and is a recommended food for patients in the hospital too.
My mother makes it very well, soft and fluffy with only three eggs.
My cousin hides some minced pork at the bottom to give it a nice base and a better flavour.
My mother sometimes would make steamed minced pork for lunch. What is left is used as a base for her steamed egg. Nothing is left to waste.
I would always remember her saying that if we know how to plan our meals, we could save a lot of money. And food would be ever so tasty too.
Steamed egg is one dish which tied us over for many many years.
Cost of three eggs in those days? 45 cents.
