In heatproof bowl, soak mushrooms in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze out water; chop. Using flat side of knife, crush water chestnuts.

In large bowl, combine mushrooms, water chestnuts, cornstarch, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, pepper and all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the green onions; mix in beef.

Spread mixture in 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate to form large patty. Spread with hoisin sauce. Place rack or steamer in wok or large shallow pan; pour in enough water to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) below rack. Cover and bring to boil; reduce heat to medium-high.

Place pie plate on rack; cover and steam until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre of patty reads 160°F (71°C), about 15 minutes.

Remove from steamer; drain off fat. Sprinkle with remaining green onions. Serve with more hoisin sauce, if desired.
