Total time
Serves: 3-4
  • half a pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 stalks green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • half a teaspoon white pepper
  • half a teaspoon salt
  • half a teaspoon sugar
  • half a cup raw sticky rice( I soaked the rice with water and refrigerated it overnight, that's how my mom makes it, if you don't have enough time at hand, just using raw sticky rice will work too)
  1. Mix ground beef, egg, green onion, cooking wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, white pepper, salt and sugar together well in a container.
  2. Roll the mixture into a couple of bite size meat balls with hand.
  3. Lay the sticky rice on a flat plate, coat with the sticky rice gently and evenly.
  4. Place the meatballs inside a steamer, after the water starts to boil, steam for about 20 minutes.
  5. Top with freshly chopped green onion to serve while hot.
