This is a completely authentic take on an easy and delicious family style dish, so beloved in China that it also shows up at formal banquets. I've always been surprised that we don't see it on more menus in the US.

I just made this as it sounded interesting--tasted like hot tomatoes and scambled eggs! That will be the only time I make it without additions like more onion, some spices, making it into an omlet and adding cheese.

This dish has also been a favorite in my family since I was very little. It's great with rice, is healthy, and nutritious. I would add some chopped garlic for a little bit more flavor; my family adds the garlic with the tomatoes so they don't fry-- but cook in the juices of the tomato.

I grew up on a recipe similar to this one, except the way my father did this for me was he put some oil in a frying pan added sauce to coat bottom of pan let that heat up and then added an egg or two and kept the egg sunny side up. Added some salt and served with his italian loaf bread. mmm So good.

I was first taught this recipe when I was living in Tianjin China while on work assignment. The secret for truly authentic is to start the eggs on low temp and stir with chop sticks in order to get the long egg strains similar to egg drop soup. Take the eggs out and set aside. Turn up the heat to med-high, add a little more oil and then stir fry the tomatoes. Once done take off heat and add eggs back to wok to re temper and serve. Thanks for reminding me of this great authentic dish!

Simplicity is a valuable asset with some dishes and this one isn't any different. I made the dish exactly as the recipe indicated and loved it! I prefer a little more salt with the tomatoes and salted them before adding them to the eggs. It was very surprising to me that a previous reviewer with an 'expert' rating was disappointed that this dish tasted like scrambled eggs with tomatoes since the list of ingredients leaves nothing to the imagination. I loved the taste of the fresh tomatoes with the eggs. I wouldn't change a thing in this recipe. Yum!

This is a staple in any Chinese household, including our own! Very simple, yet so good! re cheese and bacon -- This is a traditional Chinese dish, it isn't trying to be American breakfast food).

This is a breakfast staple in the Philippines, especially with the ilokanos. My family had their own way of cooking it. We add salt to the eggs, saute'ed the tomatoes in oil first, let it get a little soft, then add beaten eggs & green onion. you may also add a few drops of soy sauce before adding the eggs. asian comfort food!
