Category: Lamb/Sheep

 Ingredients List

  • 1 3/4 lb Piece of boneless lamb
  • 2 ts Dark soy sauce
  • 1 tb Light soy sauce
  • pn Salt
  • 1/2 ts Sugar
  • 5 sl Ginger
  • 1 tb Ginger juice (see note)
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Scallions, cut in half and
  • -smashed
  • 2 sm Dried hot peppers, ground
  • 1 c Uncooked long-grain rice
  • 2 Star anise
  • Fresh banana leaves (opt,
  • -see note)


Cut the meat into "butterfly" slices by making one slice not quite
all the way through and the second slice all the way through. Pound
the meat lightly.

Toss the meat with the soy sauces, salt, sugar, ginger, ginger juice,
garlic, scallions and hot peppers; marinate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the rice powder by putting the rice and star anise
into a dry skillet and cook while stirring until the rice is brown.
(It should be thoroughly browned but not scorched.) Spoon the rice
and anise into a blender++a food processor won't work++ and blend
until it's the consistency of fine sand. (Don't blend it too finely.)

Line two steamer sections with banana leaves cut to fit. Put half
the rice powder into a bowl, reserving the rest in a jar for future
use, and dredge the lamb pieces in the powder, coating them

Arrange them on the banana leaves and steam them for 25 minutes. At
the end of 15 minutes, sprinkle them with a little water. Serve in
the steamer.

NOTES: Ginger juice is made by covering fresh crushed ginger with
boiling water and letting it stand for 15 minutes or so.

If you can't get banana leaves, the lamb may be steamed on a plate.
