10 Min


15 Min


Stove Top


1 tsp
sesame oil
1 c
chopped onion
1/4 c
chopped green onion
1/2 c
chopped celery
1 c
bean sprouts
1/4 tsp
cornstarch or tapioca flour
1/2 c
chopped ham
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
1 tsp
8 medium
eggs, well beaten

Directions Step-By-Step

In a skillet over medium heat, heat sesame oil and
lightly fry the onions, celery and sprouts. Stir in
cornstarch and add ham, soy sauce and salt. Stir
until well blended. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl.
Return the pan to the heat, and add the beaten eggs.
Fry the eggs while stirring gently. Return the vegetable and ham mixture to the pan while the eggs are still liquid.
While cooking I try and make my egg mixture round by using the spatula and going around all the sides scooping the egg until it sets, you can get them pretty round by doing this. Finish frying until eggs are fully cooked.
I make a chicken gravy using chicken broth and thickening it with the tapioca flour which I use, (I like it better than corn starch.)and then I add some crushed almonds to the gravy. I don't have a recipe for the gravy I just use about two cup broth and thicken it. Pour gravy over Foo Young. ENJOY
