If you are using the dried shrimp, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes. After, drain the shrimps and chop them up.
Next, prepare the ground pork and other ingredients. Season the pork with some salt and pepper. Set aside. Then, slice your scallions and red chillies, if using, into long diagonal strips.
Now it’s time to steam your tofu. Use a pan or pot with a lid. Fill it with about 1 to 1 ½-inch of water and place some spoons upside down to prop the plate on. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil. Put your block of tofu onto a plate and then carefully place the entire thing into the pot to steam. Steam the tofu for 5 minutes.
After, heat up a wok or pan and stir-fry the ground pork and dried shrimps until it becomes fragrant. Add in the water, oyster sauce, soy sauce and bring it to a simmer. Add in scallions, red chillies if using sesame oil, salt and sugar to taste and the white pepper powder.
Quick stir-fry everything together for 30 seconds to a minutes.
Pour the stir-fried pork on top of the steamed tofu and serve hot with rice. Enjoy!
