  1. Hi guys, made this one last night – forgot how much I love it. I am the only one in my fam on Keto so it is great to make one dish we can all eat. DELICIOUS!!! Also, I had a container of premade pork carnitas from supermarket that I got in the premade mashed potato aisle and just used that instead of chicken – quick and easy – can't beat it. Thanks!

  2. I have been on the Keto diet for a few months now, I have been making something similar to this, with chicken, beansprouts and eggs, its how my local take away makes it ; )
    Will defiantly be trying it this way soon!

  3. I grew up on this stuff and yes its the gravy that makes it. I grew up in the mid west USA and after I left my parents house I found out in San Francisco China town that this is an American dish. All those years thinking it was authentic Chinese. I'd try using the Char siu pork (red pork) from the restaurant for pork egg foo young.

  4. I just visited your website to decide on breakfast and here these little beauties greeted me! I'll be 40yo in 2 weeks and since I was a child this is what I ate from our Chinese carry out (or sit in) with a side of shrimp fried rice and egg rolls. Now I wouldn't typically choose chicken over bacon in the morning, but THIS morning chicken wins! Thanks!

  5. Love love love EFY! OMG.. that looks delish. I use to get it with the gravy… I was just thinking.. how could we keto the gravy? I think a beef stock is too strong.. maybe a turkey stock or chicken stock with maybe arrowroot thickener? IDK…..mmmm…

  6. Wow, so I made this tonight for dinner. I added freshly chopped ginger and some finely shredded cabbage and a spoon of natural peanut butter (I didn't add any meat.)  AMAZING! This will be a staple dish! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I had breakfast before watching this vid. I sauteed onion, added 2 beaten eggs mixed with a couple Ts of heavy cream and almond milk,salt and CURRY POWDER. Let it cook until set and done, no flipping. Top with a couple Ts of plain Greek yogurt and a ton of cilantro.

  8. This looks great ! If going to make the gravy part, be careful with the xanthum gum as far as just lightly sprinkling it a bit at a time and whisking it really well. I put mine in a shaker so it's easier to control. The tinyest bit goes a long way

  9. I second the shirts for sale suggestion! Would love a tank to wear to the gym!
    Have you guys done a keto "eggroll" before? That's something I definitely miss. Would love to find a substitute for the wrapper so I could actually fry them but can't think of what to use.

  10. Been following you guys for a while, but first time commenting. You both have sincere love, respect and support for each other. Love to see that! I've made egg fu young before starting keto and it was good too, but now I'm going to have to try it again. I made use scallions, mushrooms and bean sprouts (zero net carbs and in classic version). Top with a home made high fat beef gravy and OMG. It makes an awesome breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  11. I adore egg foo yung!  I use a wide, cast iron pan for searing/cooking all proteins and leave any vegetables raw for the added texture (crunch).  Open your mind and step into an Asian market. I prefer to keep my patties simple with shrimp or BBQ pork (yes, you can make your own marinated and roasted pork loin using Keto-friendly ingredients as the red dye is basically food-coloring drops that you'd use every Easter when dyeing your eggs.)  I use quite a bit of oil for that caramelized eggy crunch, too.  For the veggies, I stick with raw mung bean sprouts (the BEST stand-in for "rice" when diced up and you've no fresh cauliflower "rice" but you've got a saucy stir-fry to ladle) and either Napa or regular green cabbage and white onions. 

    The much-needed egg foo yung sauce can be made with Keto-Friendly arrow-root powder, chicken or beef stock with sesame oil and a minced clove of fresh garlic sauce as these pancakes, while tasty and filling, are dry to the palette.  Corn starch has three carbs per tablespoon and if you were good earlier in the day, then you can make the sauce traditionally with a single teaspoon added to a 1/4 of cold water then stirred into a cup of boiling hot chicken broth for that silky, shiny sauce everyone loves. 

    Never be afraid to try new things until you've determined they're not for you through trial, error and tasting. 

    Another favorite is using a thick slice of prime rib steak that's well-marbled with fat, cut 1/2" thick slices and marinate the steak in 1/2 teaspoon of corn starch or arrowroot powder, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of grated fresh onion and 1/2 teaspoon of grated fresh garlic clove.  Stir to combine and let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes while you prep the veggies and sauce. 

    Slice up either three stalks of well-washed bok or pak choy stems and leaves (separate both as they cook at different times), 1/2 cup of sliced crimini mushrooms or a can of drained/rinsed baby straw mushrooms, 2 stalks of well-washed celery slice in 1/4 inch diagonal bias, 1/2 a small white onion cut into wide chunks) and finally, a cup of fresh mung bean sprouts.  I tend to use a single large cutting board but you might want separate bowls for the ingredients.  It doesn't really matter as they all go into the pool at the same time.

    In a deep HOT wok or wide, deep HOT cast iron skillet, sear the fatty, succulent steak slices in a tablespoon of coconut oil and remove to a bowl.  Add another tablespoon of coconut oil and when it's shimmering, it's so hot…add the onion, mushrooms, celery and bok choy/pak choy stems, and bean sprouts.   Stir-fry them to quickly sear them for 2 to 3 minutes, adding in a 1/2 cup of HOT chicken broth that you've nuked in the microwave for 4 or 5 minutes, and stir in 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and a few shakes ground, black pepper to-taste.  Add in the chopped green leaves of the bok or pak choy.  Add the seared steak and the juices that accumulated in the bowl, stirring everything vigorously and then, add the cup of HOT chicken or beef broth.  Your final step is to drizzle in a slurry of either 1 teaspoon of corn starch or arrowroot starch dissolved in 1/4 cup of cold water and stir until the mixture has thickened.  Serve over cauliflower rice you've already prepared or diced mung bean sprouts.

    Another, more savory option, just onions and bell pepper chunks instead of the rest of the veggies and a full teaspoon of soy sauce…follow the other steps for a delicious addition to the egg foo yung patties.


  12. Oh yeah, Egg Foo Young is one of my all-time favorite takeout dishes.  Generally I will get the Shrimp or Seafood (Shrimp and Imitation Crab Meat) version, but this looks great.  Thanks for making one of my favorite dishes keto-friendly!  I will probably wait until after the 20 under 20 challenge to make this dish though.

  13. The best part of egg foo young is the brown gravy, at least that how its served around here. Pretty sure the gravy is carb loaded. Any idea how to make a keto brown gravy for this?
