  • Blend beef and pork with (g)~(j) until it is very sticky.
  • Add green onion, minced mushroom and water chestnut and egg white then blend them well.
  • Add (k)~(m) into the mixture and blend again. (A very important step to make the meatballs juicy and tender.)
  • Squeeze the mixture into the ball shape (about size of ping-pong ball) and lay them on big plate.

Steam the meatballs:
  • Steam the meatballs for 12~15 minutes. Ready for serve.

  • Try to keep smashing and squeezing the meat mixture while you are blending, that can make the meatballs elastic and chewy.
  • Steamed beef meatballs are very typical "DIM SUM", that means people eat them plain, without rice. So don't add too many salts or too much soy sauce in the mixture.
