  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Chinese rice wine
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp fat or oil (e.g. pork/chicken fat, groundnut/sunflower oil)
  • half a small onion (finely chopped or sliced)
  • 1 handful pak choi, cabbage or other greens (roughly shredded)
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped or shredded)
  • 50 g cooked meat e.g. ham, pork, chicken, beef (shredded (see Recipe Notes for vegetarian alternatives))
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaf (optional) (torn or roughly chopped)
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • 60 ml chicken or vegetable stock (low salt if possible)
  • 10 ml light soy sauce (approx half a tablespoon)
  • 10 ml Chinese rice wine (approx half a tablespoon)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 0.5 tsp sugar (optional)
  • chilli flakes or sweet chilli sauce (optional)
  • 0.5 tsp cornflour
  • 2 tsp water
How to cook:
  1. For the (optional) sauce
  2. Put all the ingredients except the cornflour and water into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the cornflour and water to a paste.Add the paste to the contents of the saucepan and quickly whisk until the sauce thickens.Turn the heat to very low & cook for 2 minutes.Set aside while you make the omelette.
  4. For the Foo Yung omelette
  5. Break the eggs into a bowl.Add the soy sauce, Chinese rice wine, sesame oil, black pepper plus a little salt then beat lightly together. Set aside.
  6. Put the fat or oil in a medium frying pan and heat to moderate.Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softening and starting to brown (approx 10 min).
  7. Add the greens, garlic and meat (or substitute veg), season lightly with salt & pepper and cook until the greens are starting to wilt and the meat is taking on some colour.
  8. Turn the heat up a little, stir in the coriander leaf, then pour over the beaten egg mixture.Leave to cook until the bottom of the omelette is set and is golden brown.
  9. Turn the omelette over: doing this in sections is easier & I think gives a better-looking finished dish. I cut it into quarters and turn each quarter over.
  10. Cook until the other side is also golden brown then stack the pieces in a bowl.
  11. If using the sauce, reheat if necessary then pour over the foo yung.
  12. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if using and serve.

  • 8 eggs

How to cook:
  1. To make the gravy
  2. Combine the soy sauces, oyster sauce, sugar and chicken stock in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over a medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch with about 1/4 cup water and then pour into the gravy. Stir and let it cook for 1-2 minutes more - the cornstarch will thicken the sauce. Remove from the heat and set aside with a lid on to keep it warm.
  3. To make the foo young patties
  4. Fry the onion for 1-2 minutes in a little oil until soft. Add the chicken pieces and mushrooms and cook for a further 5-6 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool a little.
  5. Beat the eggs with the chicken stock and then add 1/2 the spring onion, the chicken, onion & mushroom mix, beansprouts and sesame oil and season with salt & pepper. Stir well to combine everything.
  6. In a wok or deep frying pan, heat the canola oil until just hot, but not smoking.
  7. Take a ladleful of the egg mixture and gently turn out into the oil. The egg will puff up in the hot oil. It may spread out too, so, using a flipper, flip the sides in a little to make a neater pattie. Let it cook for about 1-2 minutes each side until browned.Remove from the oil and rest on paper towels while you cook the rest of the foo young patties.
  8. Serve over a little fluffy rice with a spoonful of the gravy on top - finally, sprinkle with a few spring onions and you’re done!
