Easy Egg Foo Young Recipe With The Red Copper 5 Minute Chef

An easy way to make egg foo young for a meal for one person

  I discovered a while back a red cooking device that makes a perfect omelet. The Red Copper 5 Minute Chef also cooks many other things like chocolate pancakes and cake. It is a small appliance that my younger boys are allowed to use as I do not allow them to use the stove just yet as we have a gas stove. I am afraid that the boys would not turn on the gas correctly. The Red Copper Chef is easy for my boys to use as all they have to do is plug it in and wait for the green light to turn on. I have taught my boys how many minutes it takes to cook pancakes so they are able to cook their own breakfast.

Egg Foo Young is
+ A meal for one
+ Easy to make
+ Delicious
+ Loaded with protein
+ Loaded with fiber
+ Made with eggs
+ Great for lunch or dinner

A Red Football Shaped device makes cooking so easy

 Since the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef makes cooking so easy, I knew that I had to try other recipes in this cooking device. I thought about a recipe that I love to make but is hard to make it look good. The recipe that came to my mind was egg foo young. I love egg foo young but when I make it at home, it never looks as good as the ones I get from Chinese restaurants. I have a recipe that tastes just as good as Chinese takeout egg foo young but I wanted to see if the 5 Minute Chef could make it look good too. So I made my egg foo young recipe and poured some into the red cooker.

Never latch The Red Copper 5 Minute Chef 

I am not sure why there is a latch on the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef. When I first used this device, I made the mistake of latching it while cooking eggs as I thought the video that I watched told me to do so. Big mistake! I must have overfilled the cooker or the pressure must have built up inside. When I opened up the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef, it exploded and I had eggs everywhere. So even if you come across directions to latch the red cooker, do not as it just might explode eggs all over your kitchen.

 My egg foo young recipe has many different oils and sauces in it so it may seem complicated. The recipe really needs all these ingredients for the best flavor and once you measure them all out, the rest of the recipe is simple. The only part that is not so simple is forming the egg foo young into nicely shaped patties. When I make the recipe in a regular pan, the patties may look funny but it still tastes delicious.

Perfectly formed egg foo young in the Red Copper pan

 The Red Copper 5 Minute Chef changes all that as it forms the egg foo young into nice thick patties. I am so glad that I decided to cook them in this football-shaped cooker. If you do not have one of these red cooking devices, then you can make the egg foo young in a regular fry pan. Get those instructions HERE.

  If you want a super-easy way to make egg foo young, then check out my Egg Foo Young Frittata recipe. Even the sauce is super easy to make as it only uses three ingredients. Did you know that you could make the egg foo young sauce with brown gravy?

Ingredients needed
+ Eggs
+ Bean Sprouts
+ Carrots
+Soy Sauce
+ Garlic
+ Scallion
+ Oyster Sauce

+ Vegetable Oil

Egg Foo Young
                                                        Makes 6-8 patties
                                              6 large eggs
                                              1/2 cup vegetable broth
                                              1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
                                              1/2 cup shredded carrots
                                              1 scallion, finely chopped
                                              2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
                                              1 tablespoon oyster sauce
                                              1 tablespoon soy sauce
                                              1 tablespoon sesame oil
                                              1 tbsp vegetable oil
                                      Foo young sauce
                                            1 cup vegetable broth
                                            2½ tablespoons soy sauce
                                            2 teaspoons rice vinegar
                                            2 teaspoons sugar
                                            1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of water
                                            1 teaspoon sesame oil
                                            1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add vegetable broth, mushrooms, bean sprouts, carrots, scallions,  garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Stir until all the ingredients are evenly coated. Set aside and make the sauce.
  Combine all sauce ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring often. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for two minutes, stir a couple of times. Take the pan off the stove and set it aside so you can prepare the egg foo young patties.
  Heat up the 5 Minute Chef and lightly coat it with the vegetable oil. Once the Red Copper has warmed up, fill it up with the egg mixture. Make sure to get plenty of veggies in the cooker. Then close up the Red Copper pan-do not latch it- and cook for six minutes. Slowly open up the Red Copper cooker to see if the eggs are cooked and brown. If not, close it back up and cook for another minute. Take the egg foo young patty out and continue this process until all the mixture is used.

  Warm up the sauce, if needed, and pour over the Egg Foo Young patties.

Thank you for this post I really love egg foo young as I used to work in a Chinese restaurant and that’s where I first discovered egg foo yong in 1967. The reason there is a latch I believe is simply for storing the unit you snap at clothes and standing up for easy storage on your counter

What an interesting little cooking tool! I had never heard of it before this!
