Omelette Wraps with Flavoursome Pork Filling

Serves: 4

Preparation: 2—4 minutes

Cooking: 16—18 minutes

 

Ingredients:

30ml/2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

225g/8oz/2 cups minced (ground) pork

30ml/2 tbsp Thai fish sauce

5ml/1 tsp sugar

2 tomatoes, peeled and chopped

15ml/1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)

ground black pepper

sprigs of coriander and fresh red chillies, sliced, to garnish

For the omelettes:

 5-6 eggs

15ml/1 tbsp Thai fish sauce

30ml/2 tbsp vegetable oil

 

Directions:

Heat the oil in a wok, add the garlic and onion, and fry for 2 minutes until soft. Add the pork and fry for about 8 minutes until lightly browned.

Stir in the fish sauce, sugar, tomatoes and black pepper; simmer until slightly thickened. Mix in the fresh coriander.

To make the omelettes, whisk together the eggs and fish sauce.

Heat 15ml/1 tbsp of the oil in an omelette pan or wok. Add half the beaten egg mixture and tilt the pan to spread the egg into a thin, even sheet.

Cook until the omelette is just set, then spoon half the filling Into the centre. Fold Into a neat square parcel by bringing the opposite sides of the omelette towards each other – first the top and bottom, then the right and left sides.

Slide the parcel on to a warm serving dish, folded side down. Repeat with the rest of the oil, eggs and filling to make a second omelette parcel. Garnish with sprigs of coriander and red chillies. Cut each omelette in half to serve.

COOK’S TIP

For a milder flavour, discard the seeds and membrane of the chillies, where most of their heat resides. Wash your hands after handling chillies.
