Thai Omelet with Minced Pork Recipe

Thai Omelet with Minced Pork

Thai Omelets are a little like a flat, solid, golden-brown pancake made of egg and other ingredients, rather than the light, fluffy, thin, and barely cooked versions included in western cuisines. Kai Jeow Moo Sap is a type of Thai Omelet where ground pork and other seasonings are cooked inside the whipped egg. This allows the juices and fats from the meat to mix with the raw egg while cooking, creating a juicy and very delicious egg dish that is usually eaten as a side dish with other foods for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner. In this recipe Worawut uses the traditional cooking method, where a large wok and a generous portion of vegetable oil is used to fry the egg. Many westerners think the Thai Omelet is too oily, so if you are trying to limit your fat intake, this recipe is probably not for you.
