10 large egg Egg
2 tbsp Water
1 tsp Fish sauce
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
2 tbsp Ghee (or avocado oil; or favorite high temperature cooking fat)
1 small White onion (finely chopped)
227 gm Cremini (Italian) mushroom (trimmed and thinly sliced)
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
227 gm Beef, ground, lean
142 gm Baby spinach
2 tbsp Chives (chopped)
1 tsp Hot sauce (your favourite; optional)


  1. Heat a 12-inch cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. While the pan is heating up, crack the eggs in a medium bowl.
  2. Whisk the eggs with the water, 1 teaspoon fish sauce, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.
  3. When the skillet is nice and hot, add the ghee. Once it’s shimmering, toss in the onions and mushrooms, and ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Cook, uncovered, until mushrooms release their liquid.
  4. Stir-fry for another 5 minutes, or until the mushroom liquid has evaporated and the ’shrooms are browned. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  5. Toss the ground beef in the pan and use a spatula to break up the meat.
  6. Add ½ teaspoon kosher salt and cook until the meat is no longer pink.
  7. Add the spinach and cook for 1 minute or until the spinach is just wilted. Taste the filling to check that it’s seasoned enough and adjust if needed.
  8. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Stir and scrape the pan ’til the eggs are fully set, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Transfer the scramble to a serving dish and top with chopped chives. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
