  • 300g pork mince
  • 100g white mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 cups (160g) shredded Chinese cabbage
  • 3 green onions, shredded, plus extra for garnish

Turn over and cook for a further 1 minute or until the egg is set. Turn out onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and eggs to make four omelettes.
  5. To serve, spoon pork and vegetable mixture on top of omelettes. Drizzle over sauce. Garnish with extra sprouts and green onions. Scatter with sesame seeds.
