Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1/3 cup chopped onions
- 2 large garlic cloves minced
- 1 pound ground beef or pork
- 1 tablespoon fish or soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 6 large eggs beaten
- 2 tablespoons oil divided
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
Heat two teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet. Add onions and garlic and sauté, stirring often, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef or pork and cook until cooked through, stirring often and breaking large clumps with a wooden spoon, about 8 to 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Drain the beef mixture and let cool for 10 minutes.
Add eggs and fish or soy sauce to the cooled beef mixture and stir to combine.
In an 8-inch non-stick skillet, heat one teaspoon of the oil over medium-low heat. With a ladle, scoop some of the mixture (about ¼) into the hot oil. Let omelet set for 3 minutes, then sprinkle with some of the green onions. Flip omelet and cook 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining oil, egg-beef mixture, and green onions until the mixture is gone.
Serve omelet individually, or stack on top of each other and cut into 4 layered slices. Serve with ketchup or sriracha chili sauce.
