This egg and onion dish brings back some good school memories. It was one of my favorite dishes for my lunch box that my mom made. For lunch boxes, moms had to cook several side dishes in the morning. I can see that my mom liked to cook this since it is very simple and we loved it. Usually, Korean food takes time to make and has many ingredients. In that point, this recipe is one of the simplest recipes on this website. 🙂 The flavor of onion with fried eggs tastes great without any other flavors. I am a garlic, onion, and green onion lover. Are you too? If so, you have to try this recipe someday. 😉
Yield: 2 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- HyangSu (향수) = Perfume
- HyangSu (향수) = Homesick
- 1 Cup Onion
- 3 Eggs
- ¼ tsp Salt
- Some Cooking Oil for Frying
Slice 1 medium sized onion thinly. You will need about 1 cup.
Combine the onion, 3 eggs, and ¼ tsp of salt. Mix it well.
The easy way to cook the egg is to pour all of the egg mixture into a heated and oiled (1-2 Tbsp) pan, spreading it out across the bottom of the pan. However, when my mom made it, she would pour a large spoonful at a time into the pan. This makes the egg a little crispier. 😉 Fry it on medium high.
When one side becomes golden brown, flip it over. Gently press it with a spatula.
When both sides are golden brown, it is done.
Cut the cooked egg into smaller sized pieces, unless you cooked my mom’s way.
It looks good and tastes great. Thanks. 🙂
