Crowd Pleasing Weeknight Egg Recipes

We love eggs because they are quick and effortless, perfect for busy weeknights. 

Plus, eggs are always crowd pleasers! I’ve never understood having the patience to serve up special requests for different members of the family at meal times. 

I always insisted that Sarah and Kaitlin eat whatever I served, and that was the end of the story! 

You can imagine that dishes like this one make that a lot easier. Other standbys that I relied on a lot over the years were Fried Eggs with Soy Sauce and Tomato and Egg Stir-Fry

We recently put together a list of our 25 Favorite Chinese Egg Recipes, and you all loved the range of both fast weeknight recipes and traditional Chinese recipes that really help eggs shine.

The Key to Perfectly Scrambled Eggs in Chinese Cooking

Generally speaking, the key to cooking eggs in a Chinese kitchen is well-beaten eggs, high heat, and a good amount of oil. The eggs will puff up into a light and airy scramble—done in just a minute or two.

This is the method we use for stir fries like these, and to cook eggs for fried rice. If you pull off this technique, it makes this dish that much more delicious and satisfying. 

Recipe Instructions:

Beat the eggs with 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine, white pepper powder, sesame oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Set aside. 

Beaten eggs

Heat a dry, clean wok over medium heat. Without adding any oil, dry fry the peppers for 3-5 minutes to blister and soften them. Transfer to a dish, and set aside. 

Dry frying peppers in wok

Increase the heat to high. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to coat the bottom of the wok. Immediately add the egg.

Adding eggs to wok

Cook until the eggs are solid, yet still soft.

Scrambling eggs

Transfer to a dish (keep the eggs separate from the peppers). 

Plate with peppers and scrambled eggs

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok. Cook the garlic for 20 seconds.

Cooking garlic in wok

Stir in the peppers. Immediately add the light soy sauce, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and sugar. Stir and mix well. 

Adding peppers to wok with garlic

Quickly add the eggs, scallions, and 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine.

Adding Shaoxing wine to eggs and peppers

Increase the heat to high, and mix everything well. It doesn’t need to cook further at this stage—just stir to incorporate and let the flavors meld. Serve.
