How to make stir-fry eggs silky

  • Add arrowroot slurry to the beaten eggs. This will create a nice moisture seal in the egg mixture and, in combination with the cooking tips below, will make the stir-fry eggs silky.
  • Use a well-greased cast iron skillet or a ceramic non-stick skillet. It will be easier to make the scrambled eggs soft and silky.
  • Pay attention to the stovetop temperature. If the eggs seem to get cooked (become solidified) too fast lower the temperature.
