Steamed Bean curd with Golden Eggs - 金银蛋蒸豆腐

With simple ingredients yet it can turn out to be a delicious dish! This dish is suitable for toddlers and old age ah ma and ah kong because it is savoury and melts in your mouth (except the meat). To add on, it is rich in protein (good for muscles and growth)!

Seasoning B:
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar (Note: I did not add)
