Instructions
  1. Cut pickled cucumber (醬瓜), green onions. Cut the tofu into the desired shape.
  2. In a bowl, mix the pork with the pickled cucumber (醬瓜), green onion, garlic, and the sauce (soy sauce, rice wine, white pepper, and sesame oil).
  3. Scoop the center of the tofu out to make a hole. Put the mixed meat into the center of the tofu. Place the tofu with the meat into a steamer and add a little water and a teaspoon of the sauce into the steamer. Steam for 20 minutes, or until the pork is cooked.
Recipe Notes

The length of time you need to steam is dependent on the depth of the hole you make into the tofu. A very shallow hole will only need 8 minutes in the steamer.

More pickled cucumbers (醬瓜) can be used to give the dish a very salt heavy flavor.

If you want to thicken the juice in the steamer before serving, you can use cornstarch.
