Steam Mode

These Lion's Head meatballs are quick to prepare and are packed with great flavor. Best of all, the meatballs and vegetables can be steamed at one time in the Combi steam oven for an easy delicious steamed meal.


Steam-oven ground pork, chopped shrimp, bacon, water chestnuts and fresh ginger.

Featuring a combination of ground pork, chopped shrimp, bacon, water chestnuts and fresh ginger these meatballs are easy to prepare and quick to cook. In this preparation chef Paul added Bok choy and shiitake mushrooms to the steaming broth for an easy one dish meal.  


Because this meal is prepared in the Steam mode rice can be steamed at the same time.  When steaming rice in a steam oven it is not necessary to cover the cooking container, just add the rice and salt to cold water as cook as directed.  However, when cooking rice in a steam oven for best results use 1 3/4 cups of water to 1 cup of rice.


INGREDIENTS


1 lb. ground pork

1/4 cup Chinese rice wine or Sherry

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch

1 tbsp old fashioned oats

2 green onions, white parts only

1 inch piece ginger, peeled

6 water chestnuts

4 slices bacon, cut into big pieces

½ lb. uncooked, peeled shrimp

2 cups chicken stock

6-8 medium size Bok choy, cut in half or quarters

8 oz Shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and cut in half



PREPARATION


In a large bowl, combine the ground pork with the rice wine, salt, sugar cornstarch and oats.

In a food processor with the chopping blade, chop the ginger and green onion into small pieces and add to the bowl with the pork. Add water chestnuts to the food processor and pulse or chop into small pieces and add to the bowl with the pork. Now process the bacon and shrimp in the food processor and chop into small pieces, then scrape in the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.


Using your hands or a thick wooden spoon, beat the mixture vigorously, beating for about 2 minutes until it's well mixed.


Dip your hands in water and divide the mixture into 8 equal portions, (or smaller if you prefer).

Form the mixture into balls and place in the solid steam oven pan or a large oven-proof casserole dish.  Add chicken stock to the pan and steam for 20 minutes, (15 if meatballs are smaller).  Add the bok choy and mushrooms to the pan and cook for another 12-15 minutes. Serve in bowls with the stock.


Makes: 4- 6 servings
