Duck Egg and Pork Omelet (serves 3 as part of a shared meal)
I had bought 15 duck eggs recently so one of my aunts can make braised pork with hard boiled duck eggs for my uncle. There were a few eggs left over so one of my aunts and I made this quick and delicious omelet as part of our lunch. My grandmother loved it! Growing up my parents often made this type of omelet for us to eat with plain rice soup or with steamed rice.
1 1/2 Tbsp of oil
1 garlic clove, smashed, peeled and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped or peeled
About 1/2 cup of ground pork (may hand chop with a cleaver if you do not have a meat grinder)
Fish sauce, salt, and sugar according to your taste taste
Egg mixture: 3 duck eggs and 1 chopped scallion (green parts only)--whisk lightly with a fork
1) Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot add oil.
2) Add garlic and shallots, saute about 30 seconds.
3) Add ground pork. Saute for about 3 minutes or until the meat is completely cooked.
4) Season with fish sauce, salt, and sugar according to your taste.
5) Pour egg mixture over the sauteed pork.
6) After the bottom is cooked then fold the omelet into half or third. Flip the omelet over. Once the omelet is cooked to your liking then remove from heat.
