"Tomato and egg served over rice is a Chinese staple. You can easily omit the pork to make this vegetarian. This recipe is from my mom, who grew up in Guangzhou."

  1. Mix together the pork, soy sauce, brandy, 1 teaspoon sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl, then cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Beat the eggs together with the salt, and set aside. Heat half of the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Pour in the eggs, and cook until they just begin to coagulate, but are still very raw. Remove from the wok and set aside. Heat the remaining vegetable oil in the wok over high heat. Stir in the tomatoes and remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar. Cover, and allow to simmer until the tomatoes have softened, about 7 minutes.
  3. Mash the tomatoes until the mixture resembles a chunky soup. Stir in the marinated pork, and cook 3 to 4 minutes until the pork is no longer pink in the center. Gently fold in the eggs and green onions. Continue cooking uncovered 2 minutes more to cook the eggs.

i omitted the pork, brandy, and soy sauce. Next time i will use half the amount of salt and oil.

Great recipe! I've also made this without the pork and soy sauce. It is a very healthy and filling meal over rice!

This recipe works fine with 5 T oil.

Great dish. Used steak instead of pork because that's what we had on hand. Turned out GREAT, but I simplified the cooking steps a bit by just leaving everything in the wok. Add oil or water if t...
