Cooking Tips

"When you're browning meat, you should blot the surface dry with a paper towel so the meat doesn't release moisture when it hits the hot oil. Too much moisture makes the meat steam instead of sear, and you will lose that rich brown crust." - Charlie Palmer


Tortang Talong (Eggplant Omelet)

tortang talong

Tortang talong is a Filipino omelet made with grilled eggplant and covered with scrambled eggs. There are three ways of preparing the eggplant before coating it with egg. It can be microwaved, boiled or grilled. In this recipe, we have grilled the eggplant as it makes the skin easiest to peel. The grilling also intensifies the flavor of the vegetable. As a variation for this dish, it can also be mixed with diced pork, ham, or hot dogs. The eggplant can alternatively be first diced and mixed with the scrambled eggs in the pan. This dish is often served at breakfast. It is perfect with fried rice and banana ketchup.
