CHINESE EGG RECIPES
Eggs are a low-cost, very adaptable ingredient that can be used in a variety of ways to create a delicious meal. We’ve compiled a list of the finest 25 Chinese egg dishes, no matter how much time you have to spend in the kitchen.
If you’ve got just a few minutes to spare, you can whip up a quick and easy 5-minute dish or a batch of decadent Hong Kong Egg Tarts!
Every meal of the day has a staple ingredient in it.
In our household, eggs are a mainstay. For a year, we even had egg-laying hens! We got them as chicks from our grandfather, who built us a coop.
A single shred of fruit or vegetable trimmings was never wasted. Using watermelon, maize, and vegetable trimmings from the kitchen, we provided them with a nutritious diet. They’d even jump in a pile and start eating!
Foraging for bugs and grass and weeds in our backyard in the evenings, they’d climb back into the coop when it was time for bedtime.
It was great to always have eggs on hand, not only for baking but also for preparing our favorite Chinese egg dishes for lunch or dinner every day.
BEAUTIFUL, QUICK, AND USEFUL
Cooking eggs is a cinch, and they can be used in so many ways. Chinese cuisine uses them in a wide variety of ways, from steaming to hard-boiling and braising to stir-frying, scrambling, and even as custard fillings.
If you’re looking for a healthy yet fulfilling supper, pairing them with strong-tasting foods like salted chiles or preserved radish is a great idea.
Whenever a recipe is missing the last component, this is how my family and I have always completed our evening dinners together as a family. The foundation of a quick meal when you’re too busy to prepare much more than an egg and some leftover rice is this dish.
CHINESE COOKING PERFECT SCRAMBLED EGG TECHNIQUES
Generally speaking, in a Chinese kitchen, a well-beaten egg, high heat, and a generous amount of oil are the keys to successfully cooking eggs. In just a few seconds, the eggs will inflate up into a light and airy scramble.
In addition to this way, we’ve incorporated a wide variety of alternative cooking methods, such as stir-fries and eggs for fried rice.
These are all life-saving recipes. Start by heating up some rice in a pot on the stove and you’re good to go!
