Steamed Egg w/Tube Tofu

Yesterday and today we really experience bad haze. OMG! Going as high as over 300! We only went out 1/2 day in the morning yesterday and went home to hide in air con room. (Sad, couldnt enjoy the Public Holiday much)

Today haze slowly clears up in the day and with it keeps on rising from late afternoon onwards. And with my aching back, I pretty much guessed due to sleeping posture, I decided to go light. (Reduce as much standing time as possible)

I remembered seeing someing posting in a Facebook group, Steamed Tube Tofu with Prawns and a bit of beaten egg at the bottom. Looks delish but as I want to use up my ingredients I decided to modify. 

The wet wet gravy underneath is so sweet to go with rice

I added chopped tomato, a little minced meat, 1 tube tofu, 2 eggs, gouqizi and added some water. I seasoned it, luckily just enough flavour and it tasted great. My "usually" dont really fancy steamed dished hubby commented it was nice. And the steamed fish was fresh & sweet, yes, a delish dinner tonight! Even my gal kept saying the tube tofu tasted like jelly and its so nice that she wants to have it again. So here, I am sharing the recipe. 
Before steaming

Steamed Egg w/Tube Tofu
1 Tube Tofu
1/2 Tomato, diced
2Tbsp Minced meat, marinated
1 handful gouqizi
2 Eggs
2/3 Cup water
Seasonings: 1 Tbsp Sesame oil, 1 Tbsp Lt Sauce, 1.5Tbsp Fish Gravy, Dash of pepper.

1) Prepare tube tofu into approximately 10 thin rounds. Place on steaming plate.
2) Add eggs, tomato, minced meat, water and the seasonings. Beat well. Pour over to cover tofu.
3) Sprinkle gouqizi over the egg and tofu mixture. Steam for 15mins. Serve warm.

Mushroom Oyster Sauce Winglets w/Long Beans

Today decided to cook a dish which my family loves, including myself. You can even cook it for a 1-dish meal on lazy days.

I actually modify this dish slightly from the usual Oyster Sauce Mushroom Chicken by adding long beans today. Initally wanted to stir fry Garlic Long Bean but decided to make it 1-dish for the kids while the adult indulge in Spicy dishes. Ha~

Along I cooked Ginger Sliced Pork Liver, Stir Fry Bean Sprouts & Chilli Sambal Sotong & Prawns! Yummy!!

Mushroom Oyster Sauce Winglets w/Long Beans
18 Winglets
1 small bunch Long Beans
4 Shitake Mushroom, sliced
2Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1.5Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
Water (to add accordingly)

1) Sautee garlic then add in long beans and winglets.
2) Once winglets is slightly cooked, add in mushroom, oyster sauce & dark soy sauce. Add enough water to cover the winglets.
*Do not add too much if not will be tasteless*
3) Let it simmer and stir them to ensure they are cooked evenly. Add water if it dries up and stir well.
4) Use the fryer to cut thru the center of winglets. If can cut thru easily, continue to simmer another 5-8mins then bring to a boil and off fire. Serve warm.
