This ranks among the best Egg Foo Young I've ever had. I made it with small thawed shrimp which I left whole. I didn't have water chestnuts so I used celery. The water chestnuts would have been great in this dish. The chicken brooth sauce was just delicious! Next time I'm going to make this vegetarian with sauteed mushrooms. I served this dish with rice and stir fry broccoli. I had some problems keeping it in round pattie shapes but think next time I'll use a small rd. frypan instead of my big electric one. Thank you Lorac. My family is still raving.
I have never liked Egg Foo Yung from restaurants, but my husband has started making this recipe, and I love it. He doesn't mix the meat and veggies into the eggs, but pours the eggs into the pan and drops the meat/veggie mixture into the top of the "pancake" before he flips it. It is always beautiful and delicious.
I LOVED the patties! I always (& did use) use FRESH ingredients. I loved being able to add more meat to my liking. Tasted JUST like restaurant quality! It's part of my home made oriental Valentine's Dinner 07 tonight~! I didn't like the sauce, but added oyster sauce in place of the vinegar.. The addition of vinegar was too strong for me; but the oyster sauce added the zing I like. GREAT! Great! GREAT!
To get a thicker sauce doubled the cornstarch, and I used Hoisin sauce instead of Soy Sauce and sugar. I use Bok Choy (it's what I had) instead of: cup minced bamboo shoots or 1?8 cup celery or 1?8 cup shredded Chinese cabbage 2 water chestnuts, minced I used peanut oil first time, then sesame seed oil, both good.
Fantastic. Easy recipe. I halved the recipe since I'm a family of one. I made the shrimp one. I also threw in an extra egg but realized after that it was not necessary. I had no corn starch so I used Xanthan gum instead. Tastes exactly like the Chinese food I grew up on at my local Chinese food restaurant. Thanks!
