A long time ago, when I first set my foot on the US soil for higher education, I went straight to the middle America. I flew from Malaysia and arrived in the state of Iowa. After touching down, I went straight to a Chinese restaurant and the first dish I order was Egg Foo Young.
When the dish came, I was shocked to find out that the Egg Foo Young in the America was puffy and doused in a thick brown sauce. There was a thick filling of vegetables inside the eggs. The taste was very bland and unappetizing. That was my first (sad) encounter with American Chinese food.
Despite my horrible experience, many people love this egg dish. So I developed this Egg Foo Young recipe. I filled the omelette with ground pork, shrimp and bean sprouts. I combined the seasonings with the eggs, so there is no brown sauce on top of the eggs. If you are looking for the Americanized egg foo young, please trust me on this. You do not need the brown sauce. Try my recipe and I am sure you will agree!
