Today’s Egg fried with sweet and sour sauce is a quick and easy family recipe idea. We all know the eggs contain high tutritional value whose  95%  can be absorbed by our body.  The Chinese also take the way of eating eggs to the extreme:stir-frying egg, boiling egg,pang-frying egg, salted egg, steaming egg, deep fried egg,etc. Chinese women use boiling eggs or steaming eggs which is easy to digest cooking method to supplement their nutrition after giving birth to a child.

How to pan-frying eggs

Some people like sun eggs, so pan-fried only one side of the egg.Usually Chinese like cooked through eggs with both sides pan-fried. For pan-frying eggs, I think that no matter whether it is a non-stick pan or an ordinary pan, you will get beautiful eggs.

About sweet and sour sauce

I like more sourness, so I added 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoon ketchup, 2 tablespoon vinegar. If you like sweet,1 tablespoon vinegar is ok.
