Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    To die for, flavorful comfort food, and yet so charmingly simple to prepare.

    This is very odd but actually nice :) Kind of a flan texture, maybe softer, but hot and savoury. The spring onions and soy sauce in the end add a nice touch. A surprising new way to eat eggs (for me!). I replaced the Shaoxing wine by Mirin, because I had a bottle of Mirin to use up, but I think the end result would have been pretty similar. I am curious now to find a Chinese restaurant that serve those to see how the "real" version is :)
