Whenever I make dinner, I start out by perusing through the refrigerator even before deciding what I need or realizing what I have in my fridge. Any combination of ingredients that makes up a complete recipe usually becomes what is served on the dinner table that day. An egg dish like this one becomes a frequent visitor to our dinner table, given that eggs are staple foods in many households including mine.
In fact, you can make this dish in several variations like the silky kind that I made before. This one makes crumbly texture like the ones served in Korean restaurants. In Sura Korean restaurant in Oakland where I often go to, they serve a bowl of sizzling steamed egg like this one as soon as we are seated in the restaurant. They bring this out even before we place any order. A spoonful of steamed egg like this one tastes so heavenly when we had just walked in from cold weather outside.
