Minced Meat Omelet

The minced meat omelet is a very simple dish to cook. Here's how...

L-R: minced meat omelet, cucumber salad and sambal sotong

Main ingredients:
- minced meat (in the picture I used pork)
- ginger, diced (0.5cm of ginger for every 80g of meat)
- sugar and pepper (a pinch or two will do)
- soya sauce (go by table spoons)
- eggs (80g of meat, 1 extra large egg, beaten or whole)

Optional ingredients:
- long beans/parsley/peas, diced(in the picture, I used a local vegetable called the lengkalok leafs. The leafs are usually used to make a Nyonya dish called perut ikan)
- garlic, diced
- onion, diced

1. Mix ginger, sugar, pepper with minced meat. Mix well.
2. Add soya sauce table spoon at a time and mix well after each addition. The colour should turn darker a little, if it turns too dark, that means you have added too much soya sauce. Put aside.
3. Heat pan with some oil. Wait till oil heats up then add garlic and onion. Stir until fragrant. Go straight to next step if you don't use garlic and onion.
4. Add meat and stir fry until the meat is cooked.
5. Add long beans/parsley/peas. Stir fry until cooked.
5. Pour beaten eggs or crack the egg on to the meat. Make sure the eggs reach all part of the meat and the pan.
6. Flip the omelet after a few minutes.
7. Cook until omelet turn golden brown.

It is always a good idea to keep/add one or two extra eggs to the recipe. Remember that the eggs keep the omelet together. My omelet didn't stick together very well because I had too much meat. But if you prefer it that way.. well, less eggs then.

To clean your pan , just pour water on your pan and let the water boil for a few minutes. It will be easier to scrub off the layer or burnt eggs at the bottom of your pan.
