Shitake Dongpo With Mui Choy

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner is the most luxurious meal of the entire year and is about Family and good wishes for the coming year.  The new year spirit is of renewal, new beginnings and is a rich fabric of symbols weaved into the Chinese New Year traditions. The traditions are a mix of belief, folklore and custom with the intention to influence the future, encouraging happiness and wealth into their lives.  Since auspicious food is about sustenance, health, abundance, home, family, wealth, sharing and preparing for the future, it has a subtle yet strong presence to represent positive things in life that give you energy, warmth and hope.  This dish that i am sharing is abundantly prepared with the best Shitake, the most evenly layered of lean and fat piece of belly pork and the sweet mui choy.  This is a spin-off from Dongpo Pagoda With Mui Choy 

Ingredients are the same as Dongpo Pagado With Mui Choy but Method differs.  Although the prepared dish is also steamed in a hexagon mould, the meat is sliced into pieces which will fit the walls of the hexagon mould.  I used a bowl which is hexagon shaped
