Shrimp Egg Foo Young Recipe
The best egg foo young I have ever had. Hope you enjoy it too! To serve, place the egg patty over steamed rice and serve with the sauce on top.
Vegetables and cooked shrimp are combined with beaten eggs then fried and shaped into patties. Served with a thick and hot sauce made with chicken broth and soy sauce.
Less Vinegar and, Sugar a dab of sesame oil and, fish oil in the gravy form past experience. Seasoned Shrimp. Added Green Onions. Trader Joe's Chicken and Rice. Humm Hummm GOOD!!
I had to use shredded cabbage because our store doesn't sell bean sprouts and added a fifth egg after reading the reviews. For the sauce, I had to add an extra tablespoon of soy sauce so it would have more flavor and an extra tablespoon of cornstarch so it would be thicker. These little changes aside, this recipe is GREAT! It turned out so well, my husband and I both LOVED the egg foo young and the sauce. I will definitely make it again! Thanks for submitting the recipe, Karen :)
I worked for a Chinese family in their restaurant while I was a young adult and this comes close to their popular recipe. I used fresh bean sprouts instead of canned, and defrosted salad-size shrimp in a salad spinner to ensure that all excess liquid was gone. I used a vietnamese soup stock (pho) concentrate instead of chicken broth which added additional flavor to the sauce. I love to eat egg foo young for breakfast!
I’ve made this a few times now. It keeps getting better with practice. I followed another reviewer’s suggestion and did half the amount of vinegar and half the amount of sugar. I also added extra corn starch. I usually make this with no meat so I do add extra green onion and extra?? bean sprouts. I also had just a dash of salt as well as a little onion powder to my egg mixture. Delicious!?
I love egg foo yung. It's so flexible. You can use ground pork, shrimp, baked tofu, or no meat at all. You can use sauteed bell pepper, sauteed mushrooms, leftover coleslaw mix, broccoli slaw, zucchini, carrots, or any other veggies. It's even good with a bit of chopped celery, bok choy, or chopped regular cabbage. You can also use beef broth in the gravy. I highly recommend getting a bottle of oyster sauce, or vegan oyster sauce (made of mushroom.) Put a couple of TBSP in the egg mix and a couple of TBSP. in the gravy. That is the secret to tasting like restaurant quality. I REALLY like your addition of sugar here. I have not done that before, and it made a huge difference. This is such a great recipe. It's such a nice place to start.
