薑絲麻油蛋 Eggs Fried In Sesame Oil With Ginger

薑絲麻油蛋 (Jiāng sī má yóu dàn) is about as simple a recipe as a recipe can get. After all it is just a slightly fancied up fried egg. It is quick and easy, which means it meets my requirements for the amount of time I want to spend in the kitchen in these dog days of summer. So if you are looking for a simple homestyle Taiwanese recipe this is a good one.

To be honest I learned of this “dish” from the Taiwanese drama 我的自由年代 (Wǒ de zì yóu nián dài) or “In a Good Way”. Which I have to admit I rather enjoyed, it was a little better and a little more mature than the average Taiwanese drama (IMHO). And it sent me looking for this recipe.

薑絲麻油蛋

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 15 g. shredded ginger
  • 3 T. sesame oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 c. rice wine

Method:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium low heat, add 3 T. of sesame oil to the pan. Fry the eggs until just set, sunny side up. Remove the eggs to a plate. (If you use a wok add 1 T. of sesame oil and fry one egg, then repeat)
  2. Next add the shredded ginger to the pan, fry until fragrant. Add the rice wine and return the eggs to the pan. Add a dash of salt (omit if your rice wine is salted). Fry until the rice wine has mostly evaporated.
  3. Remove the eggs and ginger to a plate and pour the remaining liquid from the pan over the eggs.
