Semi-Scrambled Eggs with Ground Pork and Carrots

I've been trying to incorporate more vegetables into my daily dishes these days,
So when I was shopping at the grocery store,
Thinking about making scrambled eggs for the next meal,
Something caught my attention,
Organic carrots!
Mmmmm as an organic freak like me,
I ought to bring it home,
And this is what I came up with,

Semi-Scrambled Eggs with Ground Pork and Carrots-


6 eggs (beaten)
2 stalks of scallion (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 lb of ground pork
1 medium sized carrot (finely chopped)
Extra virgin olive oil
Soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
Thai chili sauce


First we have to beat the eggs,
During the process, add about 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and keep beating till well combined.

Heat up a pan and drizzle some olive oil,
Toss in chopped scallion and cook till slightly brown on the edges,
Add the minced garlic,
Be careful here,
We have to toss in the ground pork before the garlic gets burned.

After adding the pork, sprinkle only a tiny bit of salt and some freshly ground black pepper,
Also pour in some more soy sauce, about 1 tablespoon.
Cook till the sauce is half absorbed by the meat, toss in the carrots,
Now we can cook till the sauce is fully absorbed.

Pour in the beaten eggs,
Don't stir too much here, wait until the edges are slightly brown then flip it over,
If the mixture gets to thick,
Just go ahead and stir the center part so it gets cooked faster.

Served with Thai chili sauce.

When biting into the eggs,
You get the crunchy texture from the carrots,
You can also tastes the flavor from scallions, garlic and slightly burned eggs,
I'll have to get more rice for this dish.

*And I think kids who hate carrots will eat it too!
