Iron pot eggs

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 Eggs
¼ pounds Lean pork
½ tablespoon Lard
⅓ cup Water
½ teaspoon Soy sauce
½ teaspoon Salt

1. Beat eggs. Mince or grind pork. Melt lard. Combine with water, soy sauce and salt, and mix well.

2. Transfer egg mixture to an iron pot or Pyrex pan large enough for it to expand to about three times its original size. Cover and cook over a very low flame until eggs puff up and push against the lid (about 30 minutes).

Serve at once.

NOTE: Unless eaten immediately, these eggs will shrink. Because of the way they puff up, they're also called Grown Eggs.
