Thai Omelet (Kai Jeow)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So this is one of the easiest Thai meals you will ever make and also one of the best! I make this Thai omelet about once a week and just don’t get sick of it! There are a couple of ingredients you will probably have to find at an Asian market, but worse case you can order any of them on amazon. For the sauces you will need fish sauce, mushroom soy sauce, pork seasoning, and sweet chili sauce. Don’t feel guilty buying these just for this simple recipe, these sauces will not go to waste, they are also the mains sauces used in so many other Thai recipes.

The pork seasoning in the top photo I bought on Amazon,  but there are other brands that you can find at Asian stores that will say something along the lines of artificial pork flavor….sorry this is getting long and drawn out already.

Ok, now that we have squared away the main sauces here are the simple ingredients ….one small sweet onion(a yellow onion will do just fine too), cilantro, ground pork, and eggs. Doesn’t get much more simple than that folks.

First I do all my prep work, thinly slice the onion, chop the cilantro, and I guess I didn’t need commas because that is literally all the prep work!

So now is the time to get down and dirty, throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and use your hands to squish and mix it all together as best as you can. Probably think about taking your rings off so you don’t get icky egg mixture stuck in them…anyways here is what the final mixed project should look like.

Kind of gross looking, but I promise it will taste good. Now its time to fry it! I normally use olive oil but vegetable or any type of oil should do just fine. Heat a wok or large pan on medium high until oil is hot, then add a large scoop of egg mixture into the pan and cook on each side about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve over jasmine rice only, I will not allow this delectable goodness to be served over regular bland white rice, thanks. Here is the final Thai omelet product without the chili sauce if you insist on leaving it off.

This recipe typically feeds about 3 to maybe 4 people…but sometimes my husband and I get a little carried away and might accidentally eat the entire thing.
