Minced meat omelette ~ 'Dan Kok'


I remember that my mum used to make this omelette for us and my siblings would run for the tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.  This was a very well received dish for us and I re-incarnated this recently ..... 'Dan Kok'.



First fry the seasoned minced pork with some oil, dish it up.
Then spoon some beaten egg onto the pan and add in the minced pork, fold it up.








This is a very easy-to-do omelette and I'm sure that your family members will love it just like mine.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 150 gm minced meat
  • Pepper
Seasoning for meat
  • 1/4  tsp salt and sugar
  • 1  tsp sesame oil
  • Pepper
Preparation
  1. Beat up the eggs and add in light soya sauce and pepper.
  2. Heat up a pan with some oil, stir-fry the minced meat till cooked.  Dish out.
  3. Add in more oil and  spoon about 2  Tbsp beaten egg onto the pan, add in the some minced meat in the centre.  Flip half of the batter over to form a crescent, turn over and fry the other side.
  4. Continue with the rest of the egg batter and minced meat.
  5. Dish out onto serving plate.
  6. Garnish with some chopped chilli.
  7. Serve immediately with white rice.

  3. That's a very smart way of hiding meat inside omelette. Looks pretty too. I think it's a good way to hide vegetables for picky kids :D

  6. I usually fry the minced meat first and then pour the beaten eggs into it and allow it to set before flipping over and they turned out looking like pancakes:D Your version looks prettier

  7. Yes I remember my mum used to make this dish but fried the eggs together with the meat. I like your folded omelette version, so sophisticated :)

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
