Cantonese Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are almost a universal dish. Every child graduates from scrambled eggs in the home kitchen to greater things, like omelettes. This Chinese recipe adds just a little twist and a subtle flavour. I have added the twist of cracked black pepper, as I have found it heightens the flavour of the ginger. Omit if you want to be totally authentic in this Cantonese dish.

Cooking Method
Lightly beat the eggs, with the sugar, sesame oil, ginger and soy sauces and add the spring onions, tomatoes and chicken stock and a pinch of salt and cracked black pepper.
Heat the oil in the wok and add the egg mixture, stir fry gently and remove from the wok as the top starts to set.
Serve immediately on four warmed plates.
