    Trio Eggs Spinach in Superior Stock


    Whenever we get to eat out at a Chinese restaurant or tze char store, I will always order this particular dish as part of our multi-dish meal. My favourite part of this dish is the ultra flavourful broth. And because it is pretty soupy, I can use it to moisten my girls’ rice and flavour it at the same time.

    The century egg, and salted egg add so much umami-ness to the broth. And the beaten egg added at the end helps to thicken the broth and bind everything together. My girls and the husband are big fans of this dish as well. Although they will skip the salted egg, and century egg. Leaving it all for me to enjoy! Lol! 

    If you look at the recipe, you’ll see that I listed 2 choices of stock base. Honestly, I prefer using ikan bilis stock as compared to chicken stock. I feel that it gives it a richer, deeper flavour. Where else, chicken stock gives it a lighter, cleaner taste. So that’s a personal preference. You can even go half and half if you can’t decide!
