My attempt at Chinese steamed turnip cakes

I'm on a "copycat recipe" kick lately and my latest quest was steamed turnip cakes like you might see at Chinese dim sum. I found a recipe on a food blog and decided to give it a try.

Using Chinese sausage, dried shrimp, mushrooms, green onions and rice flour, I made a batter like mix that was steamed for about an hour.

When it was done it looked something like this:

Then you slice a few squares, fry it up and enjoy with oyster sauce. I undercooked it a little, but for a first attempt, it wasn't bad. Not amazing, but not bad. I think I need to put out an ad on Craigslist for someone's Chinese grandmother to teach me to cook :-)
