This dish is supposed to be cooked with Oysters and Bok Choy. In Japan, fairly large Oysters removed from shell are available for cooking. Here in Melbourne, Oysters are in shell, rather small, and they are to be eaten raw. They are very expensive. So, I use Eggs instead of Oysters, and it’s delicious.
3 Eggs *lightly whisked
Salt & White Pepper
1 tablespoon Oil
1 Spring Onion *finely chopped
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
2 Bok Choy *about 300g, cut into the size that is easy to eat
1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
- Prepare all ingredients and sauces before you start cooking. Separate green parts and white parts of Bok Choy as you cook white parts first.
- Whisk Eggs in a bowl, and season with Salt & White Pepper.
- Heat Oil in a frying pan or wok over high medium heat, cook Eggs softly and transfer to a plate.
- Add Sesame Oil, cook Spring Onion and Garlic for 1 minute or until aromatic, then add white parts of Bok Choy. When white parts of Bok Choy are softened, add green parts. This way you won’t overcook green parts.
- When Bok Choy is cooked, add Oyster Sauce and Soy Sauce, and combine.
- Return the softly cooked Egg and combine. Serve with freshly cooked rice.
I tried this recipe and I think that I found a new breakfast standard for some of my mornings. Thank you so much, Hiroko!
You cook breakfast? My respect to you. My breakfast is always the same Coffee and Oats porridge with some frozen berries. This dish would make a better start of the day.
The porridge with berries sounds really healthy. I make my porridge with Quinoa, Oats and Millet. I roll the grains and make it the same way that I would make Oat porridge.
I wonder if this would be good if the eggs were substituted with prawns?
Or add Prawns to it!
That sounds like a good and healthy breakfast too!
Good and healthy for lunch and dinner, too.
Hi Hiroko, I enjoyed the dish very much! But, I just want to share that the ingredient list doesn’t include the ginger. 😉
Thank you, Jennifer. I have corrected the error in the method. I don’t add Ginger to this dish.
