PreparationWhisk the egg whites with chicken stock, pepper and sesame oil. Pass through a mesh strainer to remove the foam. Stir in the ham and bird’s nest. Save in a steaming dish. Steam in Miele puresteam at 90°C for 15 minutes until set. Serve.


Tips1) The steam circulates continuously in the steam oven. Even if you don’t cover the custard with aluminium foil, it will always be blister-free.

2) The key to perfectly steamed egg custard lies in the precise control of cooking time and temperature. Miele puresteam has accurate temperature control, so that the steam is kept consistently at 90°C. Even if you leave it in the steam oven slightly longer than you should, it’d still turn out velvety smooth.

1) 蒸爐內蒸氣不斷循環,水氣避免滴在食材上,毋須蓋上錫紙也可確保蛋白表面光滑。

2) 蒸蛋嫩滑秘訣在於時間及溫度控制,Miele puresteam蒸爐能準確穩定溫度於90℃,即使加熱時間稍有偏差,亦能保持蛋面光滑。
