Colleen's Story

I make this for Chinese New Year, sporting events, pot lucks, and other events.

These are the best Egg Foo Young!!! They are easy to make and taste so good. The kids love them too!

I developed this recipe when I was a teenager living out in the country near a tiny village... and missing the convienience of the Chinese food just a few blocks away when we lived in Chicago.

Everyone raves about my version of Egg Foo Young!


1/2 lb
each: chicken breast and pork steak (cooked, cooled and chopped small)

12 large
eggs (beaten)
2 can(s)
(16 ounce) mixed chinese vegetables (drain liquid into sauce pot)
1 can(s)
(16 ounce) bean sprouts (drain liquid into sauce pot)
1 large
onion (minced fine)
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
ground black pepper
4 Tbsp
soy sauce
3 Tbsp
peanut oil (more if needed)
liquid from the twree cans of vegetables
4 c
chicken broth (can use bouillon)
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper
1 Tbsp
dark corn syrup
3 Tbsp
soy sauce
1 tsp
ground ginger
1/2 c
cold water
5 Tbsp
corn starch

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all sauce ingredients together and bring to a boil.
Add thickener ingredients together and stir until well mixed to avoid lumps. Stir this mixture into the boiling sauce mixture. Stir until grave/sauce is thickened. Set aside.
Add all egg batter ingredients together and mix well.
Place some peanut oil in large skillet. Drop batter by large spoonfuls into hot oil in different areas of the skillet to form patties or pancake shapes. Cook until browned a bit and eggs are set. Turn and repeat process. Set aside in pan of sauce as you finish making the rest.
Use more oil as needed.

*** I sometimes make a couple of cheap gravy mixes together according to directions (chicken, beef, turkey, pork... doesn't matter), and add this to my sauce.... it is good either way.

    Sounds great. . I'm with Jo Anne, I like mine sliced like the Sprouts, Long and slender pieces. I like to taste the Vegies.

    I also make a Recipe of "Egg Foo Young", only use a light-batter of a Pancake or Bisquick type, then add all the Vegies. it gives a slight crust like in the resturants. Will try yours soon. Thanks

    Jo, Freda and Susan,... Thank you! I sometimes will add a bit of flour to my egg foo young... depending how well they are turning out... I will try it with the sliced onions as I love onions... I think I did it with minced onions because of children.... lol.

    Freda and Susan, did you post your egg foo young recipes? Please do... variety is the spice of life.... xo Colleen
