3 Colored Steamed Eggs

Materials for 3 Colored Steamed Eggs:

  • Steamer or steamer stand and large pot that fits dish*
  • Deep steam-able dish, about 7-8 inches in diameter and at least 2 inches deep

*It’s also super helpful to have a claw to handle the steaming dish. Make sure your pot gives you enough space to maneuver your dish in and out.

Main Ingredients:

  • 2 century eggs or preserved egg
  • 2 salted egg yolk
  • 1 salted egg white (we find that 2 whites is too salty)
  • 2 regular eggs
  • About 14oz of chicken stock

Goal for 3 Colored Steamed Eggs:

Texture: Smooth and silky like soft tofu.
Color: Pale yellow.

Guide for 3 Colored Steamed Eggs:

  1. Heat your steamer. If using a pot, bring it to boil.
  2. Mix and cut up eggs in your steam pan. Pour chicken stock to fill the pan at least an inch and a half deep. Mix everything together.
  3. Turn heat to low, then place egg pan in steamer. Steam for about 20 minutes, depending on the size of your pan and thickness of egg mix.
    • Pro Tip: If your heat is too high or if water drops or splashes on the eggs as you lift the lid, then it will create bubbles or craters instead of a smooth surface. If you cook it too long, the eggs will get firmer and not as silky.
