Stir Fried Egg with Bitter Gourd and Pork
Bitter gourd is a very nutritious vegetable and it is an excellent source of vitamins and has high dietary fiber but because of its bitter taste, many people mostly children do not like the taste of bitter gourd. Here is another easy recipe that I love to cook often at home ~ Stir Fried Egg with Bitter Gourd and Pork
Here is the recipe
2 Eggs – beaten with a pinch of salt and pepper
150g Ground pork
1/2 Bitter gourd
1 tsp Salt
Marinade for pork
1 tbsp Light soy sauce
1 tbsp Dark soy sauce
a little sesame oil
a dash of white pepper
Rinse bitter gourd. Seed and cut in slices. Rub bitter gourd with salt lightly to reduce the bitter taste.
Marinate for 5 minutes. Rinse and drain.
Add Marinade to pork and mix well. Set aside.
In a pan heat some oil and fry bitter gourd till cooked, dish up.
Add little oil to the same pan, stir fry ground pork until cooked, pour in the cooked bitter gourd, stir fry briefly.
Pour in the beaten egg to the pork mixture and stir fry until egg is set.
Dish up and serve immediately.
My favorite. I made soup with bitter melon yesterday! 😀 yum yum! Usually if I fry bitter melon, it will be with eggs too!
Looks delicious! I'm pretty sure this is called Goya in Japan and Okinawan eat this vegetables with eggs. I've never been to Okinawa or had this meal called Goya Champuru, but I heard it's very good! I love your stir fried with a bowl of rice. Looks so delicious!
Bitter gourd with egg, yours look yummy. I had try with salted egg, very nice too.
Anncoo,It is flavorful when cooked with eggs and pork. I love bittergourd 🙂 in soup , with salted egg yolk mmmmm I am hungry looking at
Bitter gourd and egg is a combination I have never tried before. Sounds interesting!
That's a delicious looking plate of bitter gourd. This would be lovely with a bowl of plain porridge. My hubby and son loves bitter gourd, but not my daughter. She's a bit choosy when it comes to bitter gourd and will only eat them when I fry them with eggs!
yummy with salted egg too!
I love bitter gourd. It's not everyone's fav veggies but I love it for its bitterness. I like petai too.

I've never heard of bitter gourd, but I love stir fry! 🙂 Looks yummy!

Indeed bitter gourd is a very good vegetable! It lowers blood cholesterol too! I'm looking forward to the day my kids will take this vegetable. 😛 Can't blame them, I used to be like that too, lol! Thanks for the recipe Ann!
I'm not a big fan of bitter-gourd. But with eggs, they are always very refreshing! Love this traditional dish.
I have yet to try bitter gourd. I have seen them in the Oriental Market and haven't brought one home yet. I was unsure on how to prepare it, maybe this way is good for me.
Anncoo.. whenever i see a pork recipe in your blog, ur earlier post – roasted pork's snap is coming to my mind.. that was so tempting..this is a great twist.. 🙂
A different take to stirfry, looks yumm!
This is another dish that I grew up with….i love this but unfortunately my boys don't like bitter gourd! sigh!

Our family loves bittermelon and egg too!!!!
Anncoo, so coincidence, actually today i going to cook this dish as well, just take out half bitterguard from fridge after I use another half to cook soup with pork slices yesterday. But I will add prawn instead of pork.Hmm YUM YUM!
This is my family's all time fav! Esp. my dad but both my girls only eat the egg. :)I've never try adding the minced pork though, shall try it! 😀
Bitter gourd is my favourite veggie and I always loves to get a big 1 and use it in soup and stir-fry the balance with egg 😛
I still can't accept bitter gourd although I know how healthy is it, haha. Maybe when I'm getting older, I will start to appreciate it 🙂
I hate bitter gourd in my young age, but now I begin to love it, especially this dish.
Oh no…..now I'm really missing this one…just what I love!! Drooling…drooling….drooling! That's also how I like it cooked. My mother-in-law would add a little sugar to make it easier for kids to eat. It actually tastes very delicious, too.
Looks delicious!Have a great day my friend!Cheers
i don't like bitter gourd but your picture makes it look tasty which i thought was not even possible with bitter gourd…hehe

Thanks Rosita :)Swee San ~ I've never tried using salted egg before. Wonder do how you cook it?Biren, Kristy ~ Me too. I also don't like to take vege when I was a kid.Sarah, I'm not sure about the taste of chicory but bitter gourd is quite bitter to some people. Just sprinkle some salt on it and rest it for a little while and rinse the bitter gourd. It will helps to reduce the bitterness. Thanks Rita & Cheah.
