Eggs and Tomatoes, Chinese-Style (P, TNT)
Source: My sister
Serves: 1

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 small tomato, chopped
About 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil (divided)
Light soy sauce to taste
Sesame oil to taste

Heat half the canola oil in a wok or frying pan. You can tell when it is hot enough if tiny bubbles form when you put the tip of a bamboo chopstick in it.

Add the tomatoes to the pan and season with soy sauce. Cook the tomatoes for about two minutes stirring occasionally. Remove the tomatoes to a serving dish.

Add the remaining oil to the wok, allow it to heat, then add the eggs. Cook them quickly while stirring, then mix with the tomatoes. Season with a drizzle of sesame oil and additional soy sauce if desired. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Poster's Notes:
I have had a couple of requests for this. I like to make it as a really quick supper when I'm in a hurry. My sister learned this recipe from friends she stayed with in Tianjing, but it is more of a method than a recipe, so the amounts listed are roughly per person.
