Easy Stir-Fried Eggs and Tomatoes Recipe. How to Make Easy Chinese Stir-Fry!

Updated on February 22, 2012

Stir-Fried Eggs and Tomatoes

Scrambled egg is one of the most simple food in the world. If Westerner prefer scrambled egg as breakfast fare, Asian enjoy them with rice. Add one or two dash fish/soy sauce or hot chili sauce to your scrambled egg will make a simple and tasty home meal. Instead of plain scrambled egg, my favorite is scrambled egg with tomatoes. Although this egg dish is not listed on the Chinese restaurant menu, but very popular at the Chinese family dinner table.

Fresh eggs and tomatoes are great pairing. Fluffy golden scrambled egg is the body of this superb dish, but the soft and juicy tomato is the real soul. If you enjoy egg and tomato, you will like this dish. It's very easy and inexpensive. It looks like little bit complicated with two step of cooking and stir-frying method but trust me, this is the easiest stir-fry dish you must try.
