Steamed BBQ pork, scallop and cabbages

When my daughter and I watching this dish cooking in a TV cooking show recently, this dish made us salivate, my daughter asked me to cook this dish immediately after the show. Actually this dish usually served during Chinese New Year or wedding dinner due to the expensive ingredients and very time consuming.

Steam for 1 hour?? My goodness! It's really time consunming!! But it certainly makes you drool!!!

This looks very nice. My mum used to cook this for us for years but she dint actually decorate it so nice. Just put everything in the claypot and steamed till soft.

busygran said...

Wow! Just like from a restaurant! So nicely arranged. How my hubby would love to sink his teeth into the meat! :)

Somewhere in Singapore said...

I tempted by the scallops as i hardly eat this kind of meat (except roasted pork)...

ICook4Fun said...

wah a bowl of goodness! That is not a cheap dish especially the big big scallops. I can imagine the taste of the veggie after soaking up all the nice flavor from the scallops.

mei said...

wah.. looks ho ho jiak ar :) I love anything with scallops..

Jo said...

Looks good with all the delicious food in it. I believe a somewhat different version is served here in Singapore and they add a bit more other expensive goodies such as dried abalone, fatt choy.

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Wah, a very nice dish to serve during festive occasions. Nice!

Usually the goodies are hidden inside and wrapped with cabbage, but this is so different!!!! I love the way the cabbages soak up all the yummy flavours from the scallops and roast pork.
