  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped tomatoes and garlic, stirring occasionally, until liquid has cooked out of the tomatoes. Carefully break eggs over tomatoes without breaking yolks. Lightly season with salt, reduce heat, and cover.
  2. Simmer covered for 20 minutes, or until yolks are fully cooked. Adjust seasoning with salt as needed. Serve with pita pockets.

This recipe is amazing when the egg yolks get poached whole in the tomatoes. To do this, just make sure the pan you're cooking the tomatoes in is deep enough for the eggs to be totally covered. Also, when eating with the pita, adding a little feta on top rounds out the flavor.

This was ok, but bland. I decided to try it because I'm Arab and not a big fan of this dish (shak shooka) the way we make it, but this is very bland in comparison to the way we make it at home. If you want to give it a kick add onions with the garlic then some mild to hot green peppers (depending on your liking) then season with cumin. That's how we make it here in Egypt and, more specifically, my house.

I remember eating a dish like this in Jordan many years ago. Good tomatoes and plenty of garlic - yum. My eggs didn't need to poach for 20 minutes though, more like 10 -12 minutes. The pita bread is perfect for scooping up the lovely garlicy tomatoes. I do think this could use some onion as well - next time.

Hi, this was ok but found it was a little bland. Maybe better if you put some salt and black pepper or cumin on top before serving.

This recipe is excellent for breakfast and easy to make. I add onions to the recipe for added flavor. If you don't have pita bread any bread can be substituted in its place. I was first introduced to this as a Lebanese dish and looked all over the internet for how to make it and this is the first 'real' recipe that came up.
