Shrimp Egg Foo Young


1) Mix bean sprouts, shrimp, eggs, green onions, and garlic powder together in a large bowl until well combined.

2) Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/2 cup of egg mixture into the skillet to make a patty. Repeat to add more patties to the skillet. Working in batches, fry patties until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.

3) Meanwhile, make the sauce: Whisk chicken broth, cornstarch, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce together in a saucepan over medium-low heat; simmer until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

4) Spoon sauce over patties.


You can substitute cooked chicken or pork for the shrimp.
