  • Beat egg in a large bowl; mix in ginger root, soy sauce, and salt. Add pork, cornstarch, and pork stock; stir in 1 direction until combined, 5 to 6 minutes. Roll pork mixture into bite-size balls.

  • Pour enough water into the bottom of a wok to cover by about 1 inch; bring to a simmer.

  • Roll pork balls in sticky rice until they are coated completely. Place 6 balls in a steamer basket.

  • Place steamer in the wok and steam until pork is cooked through and rice is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove balls and garnish with goji berries.

Cook's Note:

Chicken stock can be used in place of the pork stock.

These were very tasty I doubled the recipe and we ate them for dinner with stir fried veggies. Next time I think I'll add some onion and red pepper flakes. Read More

These were yummy. I won some goji berries and was looking for a non dessert to use them in. I think next time I will chop up a few and mix them with the filling. I didnt have a steamer but you can google instructions how to make one with aluminum foil and a plate and it worked just fine Read More
