OMELETTE WITH GRAVY / EGG FOO YONG (4-6 servings)
What you will need:
  • 6 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 6 oz peeled and deveined medium to large shrimp (cut into small chunks)
  • 3 oz of crab meat lump
  • ½ cup green beans (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 large carrot (peeled and shred into long pieces)
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • Oil for cooking
Gravy:
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (grated)
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp shao xing wine/dry sherry
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch + 2 Tbsp water
  • Salt to taste
  • Garnish:
  • 1 stalk green onions (sliced thinly at angle)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat about 2 Tbsp of oil in the wok or skillet. Add in the onions and stir-fry until it is fragrant and soft, about 1 minute
  2. Add in the shrimp and stir-fry for another minute and then add in the carrots and green beans pieces and continue to stir-fry for another 2 minutes or until they are soft and cooked. Set aside and let it cool down completely
  3. Add the shrimp and veggie mixture and crab meat into the beaten eggs. Add dash of salt and pepper
  4. Wipe the wok or skillet clean with a paper towel and heat up about 1 Tbsp of cooking oil. When the oil is hot, ladle in about ½ cup of the egg mixture onto the wok or skillet and swirl it around to cover the surface and let it cook. When the bottom of the egg is set, turn it over and let it cook at the other side. Turn the omelette over to a serving dish and repeat with the rest of the egg mixture. You may need to add oil each time as you do this. Stack all the cooked omelette on top of each other and prepare the gravy
  5. In a small sauce pot, preheat cooking oil. Add in garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Pour in the chicken stock, soy sauce, wine and sugar. Bring it to a boil and then lower the heat and let it simmer for about 3 minutes. Stir in the corn starch mixture and continue to stir until the sauce is thickened
  6. You may either serve the egg foo yong with the gravy on the side or pour the gravy on top of the egg foo yong. Sprinkle with some sliced green onions and serve immediately
