17.  Pour in the Tau You sauce that you have just mixed.

18.  Add more water if necessary.  You put water just enough to cover it.  Then, your sauce may left with little after the cooking.

19.  Cover the iCook cover.  Use medium fire.  Wait until the vapour seal and you can  turn the iCook cover.  It should be cooked.  That is about 25-40 minutes, depends on how tender you want your meat, and how much meat you put.

5.  Open your fridge, and see if you can find Pitan (Century Eggs).  I got these from Taiwan.  So, let’s use it!

DO NOT MIX the eggs with the meat.  Leave the eggs aside first.

6.  This is made from Chicken eggs.  Not duck eggs.

IMG 5563

7.  Since I love so much the preserved bean curb taste.  Let’s use it again.  Mix it with the meat later.  This will give the unique salty taste.

8.  Open the fridge again.  I found these Hokkaido dried scallops.   Let’s use it too.  This will gives the sweet taste.

9.  Put everything into a zip lock bag.  (Disposable).

IMG 5567

10.  Squeeze and mix the meat with all the ingredients inside the bag.

11.  Put everything into a steam plate.

IMG 5569

12.  Almost forgot, put the century eggs on top to decorate it.

IMG 5571

13.  Put the plate into the iCook steamer.  Cover it.  Let it steam for 8-10 minutes.

There you go.  A very sweet (meat sweet) steam meat.
