Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup roughly diced shiitake mushrooms

  • 1/4

    cup roughly diced button mushrooms or portabella mushroom caps

  • 1/2

    lb ground pork, chicken, or turkey

  • 5

    eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/4

    cup diced onion (you can use frozen diced onions)

  • 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 1

    tsp fish sauce

  • 1

    cup shredded cabbage (use a pre-packaged cole-slaw mix) or 1 cup bean sprouts

  • 1/2

    cup cooked vermicelli rice noodles, roughly cut into 1”-2” pieces. (Dried vermicelli rice noodles can be found in the asian section of the grocery store.)

  • Pepper to taste

Directions

To cook the rice noodles: bring a small pot of water to boil. Drop the noodles into the boiling water and boil for 3-5 minutes. Drain the noodles and rinse with water to stop the cooking process. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a mixing bowl. Heat a medium sized pan over medium-high heat. Film the pan with oil. Spoon about ½-1 cup of the mixture onto the pan, smoothing it into a 5-6” diameter omelet. Cook on one side for 3-4 minutes, or until you can easily lift the omelet in one piece with a wide spatula. The bottom will become a nice crispy brown. Flip the omelet, pancake-style. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the meat is JUST cooked. Transfer to a plate and allow to rest for a few minutes to let the meat finish cooking. Overcooking will make the meat in the omelete dry. Repeat steps 3 & 4 with remaining egg mixture. Serve with rice. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
