Garlic Fried Rice with Salted Egg Yolk

Labels: , ,

Kulinarya Cooking Club challenge is finally back after a loooong break. The food chosen by Trisha is salted duck egg, called itlog na maalat (salted egg) in the Philippines, a long-time favorite side dish. I haven't met a Filipino who has not eaten salted duck eggs or doesn't like them. The eggs are usually served simply sliced with chopped fresh tomatoes.

I bought a few pieces of  salted eggs from the store but they are not very good. The yolks are pale with green rings around them, which is a pet peeve of mine. I just can't stand overcooked eggs. Since there was not enough time to brine the eggs, I cured 2 goose egg yolks in salt. I separated the yolks from the white, left them uncovered for 2 days in the refrigerator to dry out, buried them in kosher salt for 3 days, rinsed, then left them again uncovered in the refrigerator for another day. They became firm enough to slice or crumble and perfectly salted. I decided to slice one and added to garlic fried rice with fried longaniza. Crispy bacon chips also sound great with this fried rice. Simple, familiar, and delicious breakfast food.

Garlic Fried Rice with Salted Egg Yolk and Longaniza
2 tablespoons light olive oil, separated
1 salt-cured goose, duck, or chicken egg yolk, sliced into 8 pieces
1 medium size longaniza, sliced
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
2 cups steamed rice
sea salt
  • In a non-stick skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon oil and fry egg yolk slices for 30 seconds up to 1 minute on each side; transfer into a plate and set aside. 
  • In the same skillet, fry the sliced longaniza until brown and cooked through; transfer into a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil into the skillet and stir fry garlic until golden in color. Add the rice, longaniza, and egg yolk. Stir fry for a few minutes. Taste and add salt if needed. Serve immediately with sliced tomatoes.

I love Fried rice paired with Salted egg!! This time it's more flavorful cause the egg is already mixed with the rice!

Oh wow, Oggi that is a nice take on itlog na maalat and you only used the yolk which is less salty. Looks really delicious. :)

I can't resist garlic fried rice, and even more so I can't say no to it if there's salted egg involved. This is so good. Great comfort food. Thanks for sharing, Oggie!
