Scramble Egg With Tomato/西红柿炒鸡蛋

IMG_4554

This a a very popular dish for Chinese, and everyone has his/her own version of how it should be cooked. It is sweet, sour and savory. It can be eaten with rice or noodles. If you ask a Chinese who doesn’t know cooking at all to cook a dish, this will most likely be the one. Here is my version of how to cook it.

Roma tomato 3

Egg 2

Garlic 1 clove (Minced)

Chinese celery 2 stalks

Ketchup 2.5 tbsps.

Water ½ cup

Sugar 1tbsp

Vinegar 1tsp

Beat up the eggs in a small bowl.

Bring some water to boil, then add the tomatoes. Take tomatoes out after 10 seconds. Peel the skin off, then cut into big chunks.

Heat up 2tbsps vegetable oil in a skillet, add the egg to the pan to make scramble egg. Don’t overcook it, once the egg is solid; take it away from the heat because we are going to cook it again later.

In the same skillet, heat up 2tbsps oil, add the Chinese celery and garlic.

Stir fry the vegetable for 2 minutes, add water and the rest the ingredients except egg.

Bring everything to boil then add the egg to it; add just a little bit of salt to taste. Thicken it up by adding some starch water.

罗马西红柿3个

鸡蛋2个

蒜1个 (剁碎)

中芹2根

番茄酱2.5 汤匙

水½杯

糖1汤匙

醋1茶匙

 

把鸡蛋打在一个小碗里。

在一小锅里煮开点水, 然后加入西红柿。10秒后把西红柿拿出来剥掉皮, 然后切成大块。

在煎锅里加热2汤匙植物油,  将鸡蛋放入锅中炒熟。 不要炒过头, 一旦鸡蛋凝固就出锅, 因为我们一会还要再煮。

在同一锅中加热2 汤匙油, 加入中芹和大蒜炒。

炒2分钟后加水和除了鸡蛋以外的其余配料。

把所有的东西煮开然后加入鸡蛋;加一点点盐。加入一些淀粉水勾个薄芡。
