Pork Mince Omelette
Here's a Pork Mince Omelette recipe for an easy dinner. With just 7 ingredients, a quick marinade and pan fry is all you'll need for this side dish!
- 6 eggs
- 1 onion
- 200 g / 0.44 lb pork mince
- 1/4 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon powder (1 tsp for the eggs and 1/2 tsp for the meat)
- cooking oil (for frying)
Marinate the pork with the oyster sauce and 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon powder.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together along with the fish sauce and remaining chicken bouillon powder.
Thinly slice the onions.
Heat up a pan or wok on high heat and pour 3 tbsp oil into the pan. Throw 1/4 cup of the onions in and saute them for 20 seconds.
Put 3 tbsp of the marinated ground pork in and stir fry with the onions for 2 minutes or until just cooked.
Pour about 1 1/2 cup of the seasoned eggs in and rotate the pan until the entire surface is covered with egg. Let it cook for 3 minutes, then flip to the other side to cook for another 2 minutes or until completely cooked through.Note: This measurement is for a 23cm (9 1/2") pan. Different pan sizes will require different egg mixture amounts.Pro Tip: Use a pan with a base the size that you want your omelettes to be. Ideally, keep it a similar size to the plate you're serving it in.
Plate, then repeat the cooking steps until all the ingredients are used up.
Serve immediately as is or with rice!
- Use a ladle to scoop the egg mixture. This will keep each omelette the same size so they stack evenly.
- Opt for a fattier mince. It keeps the dish juicier and prevents it from being too rubbery.
- Use a large flat spatula or a plate. Unless you have mastered the chef toss where you can flip the wok's ingredients in the wok itself, using a spatula will help to turn the omelette over without breaking. Alternatively, use a large plate and flip the cooked eggs onto it before sliding it uncooked side down back onto the wok to finish cooking.
- You can substitute the meat for whichever protein you prefer. Ground chicken, beef, turkey, lamb, sliced sausages and scrambled firm tofu will work as well. Alternatively, you can replace all the meat with vegetables or mushrooms or use just onion.
