Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute bell pepper and onion until tender, then stir in shrimp, bean sprouts, water chestnuts and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Heat through, then remove skillet from heat and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a second large skillet. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon colored, about 5 minutes. Stir in vegetable mixture, then pour mixture into heated skillet, forming patties about 5 inches in diameter. Fry until browned, then turn and fry on other side until browned. Drain, place on an oven-safe platter and keep warm in oven until read to serve.
  3. To Make Hot Soy Sauce: In a small bowl combine the cornstarch, water, bouillon and 2 tablespoons soy sauce and beat together. Serve with warm patties.

I am sorry to say that this recipe was not good at all. This did not happen to me but if you think about this intuitively – what happens if you add warm vegetables to eggs? Yes, they scramble. With all the items this recipe calls for you to add it was nearly impossible to have patties properly form. Those that did form did not taste anything at all like what you may receive at an Chinese recipe. Some suggestions would be to lower the amount to stuff you are trying to stuff into these patties or increase the number of eggs. Pan-frying only works in a sub-par way. If one has ever seen how this dish is made in a restaurant, they do not use a pan, rather a wok with a good bit of oil. It would not hurt also to mix in a little seasoning of some/any sort. A little ginger root, some garlic and salt and pepper would not hurt at all. The sauce accompaniment was not good. With all the cornstarch it tasted just like that. Cornstarch. We will keep looking for a better recipe. This one will unfortunately not get a second chance.

My husband loves Egg Foo Young and this was a big hit. I did add some sliced celery and minced garlic to the vegetable mix and also added onion powder to the sauce mix. I also added a 3rd tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit more. I'll be making this again.



This has always been one of my favourite chinese food dishes when ordering in. This recipe was just as good as anything I've tasted by the "pros". One note is that the directions for making the sauce seemed odd to me, because they didn't indicate to heat the sauce. I made it in a saucepan and added a tablespoon of oyster sauce for added thickness and flavour. It turned out great. (Bring it to a boil and then simmer to make it thicken) YUM!!!!
