5 large Eggs
1 tsp Salt (if using canned crabmeat, reduce to 1/2 teaspoon)
1 tsp Dry sherry
Dash Black pepper
1/2 C Fresh or canned crabmeat (or shredded cooked pork, chicken, ham, beef or shrimp)
1/2 C Julienne celery, no leaves
1/2 C Dried black mushrooms, softened in hot water for 15 minutes, squeezed dry, stems removed, and shredded
1 C Fresh bean sprouts (or drained and shredded bamboo shoots)
1/4 C Thinly sliced onion
3 Tbsp Canola, corn or peanut oil
Restaurant-style Brown Sauce:
1 C Chicken broth
1/2 tsp Ketchup
1-1/2 tsp Light soy sauce
2 Tbsp Flour, mixed w/ 2 Tbls cold water into a smooth paste
Cooking Instructions
Gently beat the eggs with the salt, sherry and pepper. Add the crabmeat, celery, black mushrooms, bean sprouts and onion and mix well. Heat the oil in a non-stick wok or stir-fry pan over medium-high heat until the oil is hot but not smoking. Test by dipping the end of a spatula into the egg mixture and then into the oil; it should sizzle. Add the egg mixture to the hot oil. Let the eggs sit without stirring until the bottom is slightly set but the top is still runny. With a spatula, turn sections of the eggs over. Continue turning the eggs until the mixture is set on both sides. Serve immediately.


Mix the ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Bring to a boil and stir until sauce is thickened. Simmer 2 minutes to eliminate the raw taste of the flour. Pour the sauce freely over the cooked eggs.
