  • In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and add salt and pepper.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a preheated wok or heavy skillet and turn the heat on high. When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture. Scramble gently until the eggs are almost cooked but still moist. Remove from the heat and let sit for 1 minute before removing from the pan.
