This Chinese-style dish is an inventive alternative to a normal omelette recipe. What’s more, it’s ready in minutes.


  • 250g pork escalopes or tenderloin fillet, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 4 large free-range eggs
  • 3cm piece fresh ginger, finely diced
  • 4 spring onions, 2 finely sliced, 2 shredded
  • 265g bag stir-fry vegetables
  • Soy sauce, for drizzling


  1. Marinate the pork in the oyster sauce for 10 minutes. Mix the eggs with the ginger and finely sliced spring onion in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp groundnut oil in a wok until hot. Add the pork and stir-fry for 5 minutes until browned and sticky, then add the stir-fry vegetables and shredded spring onion. Stir-fry for a further 2 minutes until the pork is cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a frying pan and, when hot, add half the egg mix, swirling to cover the base of the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until just set, then transfer to a warm plate and top with half the pork stir-fry.
  4. Repeat with the remaining egg and stir-fry mixtures. Serve with soy sauce for drizzling.
