    heartshapedpan's Note:

    I love Chinese take-out, and frequently try different recipes to make at home. Never quite making the grade usually. I have to say I fiddled with this one and I don't think I'll be ordering any more "egg foo young" from our local chinese joint. Don't be surprised on how good this is! It's my recipe but the ideas came from a cooking website speciallizing in Asian cuisine. If you have clam juice, or seafood stock or shrimp stock use it, chicken stock will do, and water if you have none. It will make a difference on the result in the taste of your "chinese omelets'." I have yet to master the gravy part the take-out kind, but I never eat it anyway. So I didn't include one here. If you like you can make your own gravy or use a store bought variety. But I don't think you will miss it much. Your option. I'm by no means biased against gravy.

      I made this last night as part of a chinese meal and was very happy with the results. I only made half of the recipe but followed the recipe exactly as written. I used my wok to cook each one separately (the wok helps hold the shape)and made a gravy to top them with. Served with Aunty Pam's Orange and Ginger Chicken and steamed rice made a perfect chinese dinner. No more take-out foo yung for me. Thanks for sharing your great recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2011.

      This was really a hit at dinner. I made smaller rounds so we all had enough. I followed the recipe and it worked out great. Served with some brown gravy (I found here on the site), Chinese Take-Out: Egg Drop Soup#509630 and Spicy Pad Thai#2106937. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
