A man's gotta eat!


Bachelor cooking 101 ... what to do with those leftovers from Chinese take-out (or take-away for those Downunder).

Breakfast = I make a 6 egg (3 yolks) omellette with left over Mongolian Beef from Chinese take-out. With only small pieces of beef and mostly the leaks and green onions intact, strain the excess gravy and have at the ready in a small dish. Heat the pan on high for a good 2 minutes, throw the left overs into the pan and sear/stir for 30-40 secs. Push off to the very edge of pan, and drop 2 oz of oil in the middle. Immediately add your beaten eggs. Give it 30 secs and the gradually pull the leftovers inch by inch into the middle letting the egg run through to pan edge -- turn off heat completely. As the egg hits the edge begin folding the egg inward over and over the leftovers. When the left-overs are in the middle - flip the entire omellette and let cook. Drip the gravy over the the whole thing gradually drenching it ... then flip again ... bring to medium heat to boil off the excess gravy (60 secs tops) and turn off heat. Serve to 4 people as non-meat side at dinner or as part of a hearty breakfast for 2 hungry guys.

These times may be generous if you have a more efficient range than I do. Practice a bit .. you may have to break a few more eggs to make this omellette.

cheers

Saintlianna....well of course you would my dear ... but would you swallow?

Wyvern ... will do.

frbnkslady .... uhhh MOOSE with shallots ... Oky doky ... thing is my first time viewing a moose was a beast walking directly down the middle of a road in Montana. I slowly drove behind it for several minutes wondering what was this scraggly mule doing sauntering down the middle of the road...then it turned it's head around. Nope .. not sure about moose. Bison... sure .. and based on a dish I was served in Roros Norway, I have to say the Reindeer would be a good substitute.

Keith, I hate that too ... seems to be happening more frequently of late ... I know I have lost 4-5 the past week including my bug report to Sexyfitwoman.

WaggyPolly ... True ... although to my taste buds, the Mongolina beef gravy is what lends a particular appeal to this dish, especially allowing it the egg to crisp in it rather than have it runny. I sometimes augment it a little with Worcestershire sauce to kick up the salt content .... some of course use stright soy but that's a bit overwhelming for this dish (unless you're a salt fiend).

New Brunswick Dynamite ... same here ... anything to experiment. Like it a little spicy. Finely chop about 3-4 inches off a standard stick of pepperoni. Very fine you understand. Drop in a heated skillet with very light oil ... I prefer Saffron. After a minute of sizzle, drop in extra thick and chunky Salsa of your choice .. and either Mild or Medium, but Mild will do if you want the pepperoni to shine through. Stir vigorously and give the Salsa 30 secs to heat through. Then drop your beaten eggs onto the lot. Turn off heat completely and fold and refold egg as it cooks. This is more of a scrambled eggs type recipe whereby an egg pancake results. Cut into halves or quarters as need be and serve on crisp wheat toast.

hmmmmmm... I know what I'm having for lunch.

cheers
