3 medium size bitter melons
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 piece of ginger, mashed
1 t black beans soaked and mashed
1 t oyster sauce
4 eggs scrambled (or more as needed)
Heat pan to high. Add oil, then garlic, ginger and black beans. Stir fry to brown and cooked. This also flavors the oil.
Quickly add sliced bitter melon, spread out and toss and turn. Gradually turn down heat not lower than medium.
Add little water and stir to cook quickly w/o burning, cover to let simmer to soften melon.
Add oyster sauce to taste when melons are nearly soft. (Salt and pepper for taste.)
Add scrambled eggs in portions. Pour over the bitter melon then work egg in to coat bitter melon.
(Yellowness of the egg will take the color of the oyster sauce and black beans as you toss and turn and work the eggs in.
If you want more yellowness to your dish to top it off then find an area in pan and fry w/o mixing in.)
This dish is similar to tomato and eggs and also like Chinese style lobster stir fry with eggs.
The eggs cooked this way enhance the richness of the dish by coating and retaining the flavors.
