Lu Rou Fan with Ramen Egg – 滷肉饭

One of our favorite things to eat when we visit Taiwan, they serve them in small little bowls and you get to a Lu Dan (braised egg) or a sunny side up along with it. We recreated ours with one aim, which is when you taste it, your lips will somewhat get coated with a natural lip gloss from the collagen that is rendered from the pork skin and pork belly into the sauce.

Instead of a Lu Dan (braised egg) we decide to pair ours with a ramen / candied heart egg.When cooked with the right timing, when you break into the egg the runny yolk combines with the Lu Rou and steam rice it’s just too much! The Ramen eggs pair well with other dishes too, who can resist the bite of a flavorful runny egg.
