[Recipe] Trứng Đúc Thịt
With Easter coming up, we knew had to make an egg dish! Trứng Đúc Thịt is a classic Vietnamese dish made with eggs and ground pork, mixed with other vegetables and fish sauce. You'll never see this served in restaurants, but every Viet family has their own version of this.
With recent events, and living far from home, this dish is the perfect pick-me-up!
4-5 eggs (depends on how large your eggs are, if they're small do 5!)
1/2 ground pork
1/4 onion (diced)
1 tbs of fish sauce
1 tsp of salt
In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, ground pork, onion, cut scallions, fish sauce, and salt together. Mix until the ground pork is mixed evenly with eggs.
Add just enough vegetable oil to fill the bottom of the frying pan. Turn the heat on high, and add the egg mixture once the surface is warm.
Let the egg mixture cook for ~5 minutes (subject to your stove's temp). For it to cook faster, you can also place a lid on top. Cut the egg into four pieces and flip each piece to check if it's cooked. It should look yellow & brownish like the picture.
Let the other side cook for another 3-4 minutes. If you're not sure you can always flip it to check!
Once the eggs are done, put them on a plate and use 1-2 paper towels to get rid of the excess oil.
Serve the eggs with warm hot rice.
(Pro-tip that will save time: We're no professional chefs, but if you can figure out a way to flip the entire egg in one-go...please teach us )
