Ladyfinger Omelet

Actually I don’t like ladyfinger very much. Because it is sticky inside, which tastes a bit weird to me. But I like ladyfinger omelet.

Two ladyfingers removed off two ends and put into boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Put some salt in the water.

Beat 3 small eggs in a bowl.

Heat a little oil in the pan. Pour the egg in and spread one layer in the pan. When egg starts to solidify, put one ladyfinger at one end of the pan. Then roll the egg with ladyfinger in it to the other end of the pan. 

Pour egg into the pan. One ladyfinger put next to the omelet already made. Then roll them together to the other end. 

Repeat the procedure above till all egg used up.


It will become a big omelet and cut it into small pieces.

Scrambled Egg With Tomatoes


If one dish should be chosen to represent China, I think it probably be this dish. It’s also the very first dish for most Chinese to learn how  to cook. And it also shows up very often on Chinese’s table. It’s a quick, easy and delicious dish as well.

Ingredients:

3 medium tomatoes ( peeled off, cut into even sized pieces. One tomato can be cut into 8 small pieces)

3 eggs

Oil, salt, sugar, chopped spring onion, starch, water.

1. Make omelet. Take omelet out once it solidify.

2. Heat a little oil in the pan. Put the tomato pieces in. Stir fry a little.

3. Add in salt and sugar. Keep stir frying. Juice will come out from tomato.

4. Put the omelet in and mix well with tomatoes. Omelet will be coated with tomato sauce.

5. Add in a little starchy water. Quick stir fry a little.

6. Sprinkle chopped spring onion before taking out into the plate.



In many Chinese small restaurant, they have rice topped by scrambled egg with tomatoes or noodles topped by scrambled egg with tomatoes in their menu. And it’s true that the sauce of this dish is a very good match for rice.

Moo Shu Pork (Fried Pork With Scrambled Eggs And Fungus)


I think many people are very familiar with this Chinese dish. The first time I saw this dish’s name on the menu, I was surprised. Because its Chinese name is “木须肉”( mu Xu Rou), while “mu” means wood, ” Xu”means beard. I was like what kind of dish is that! 🙂

But it turned out to be a delicious dish with pork, egg, carrot, black fungus and cucumber. 

It’s not a difficult dish to cook.

Ingredients:

Pork ( cut into pieces, marinate with a little salt, light soy sauce, and starch for 10 or 15 minutes)

Eggs (2 or 3)

Black fungus ( if you use dry ones, please soak them in water for several minutes. Please note that black fungus soaked in water for a long time could be poisonous, so just several minutes is fine. Romove their bottoms, and tear them into small pieces with hands)

Carrot ( chopped into pieces)

Chopped Celery ( because I didnt have cucumber, so I use celery instead. Cucumber would be better. )

Oil, salt, starch, water, sugar, chopped garlic (optional)

1. Make omelet. Take the omelet out once they solidify.


2. Heat a little more oil in the pan. Put the marinated pork slices in. Stir fry till they get brown and take out.

3. If there is no oil in the pan, add in a little. Put in the garlic, then carrot. Stir fry for around 2 minutes, then add in celery (or cucumber ). Stir fry for another minute or two. 

4. Put in pork and black fungus. Stir fry for 1-2 minutes.

5. Add in salt, light soy sauce and sugar. Stir fry evenly.

6. Put into the omelet. Stir evenly with the other ingredients.

7. At last pour in a little starchy water and quick stir fry for a minute.


Ready to serve.
