Simple Tomato Stir Fry

I saw this dish in Annie's blog and since my kids love tomato, I reckon they'll like this too.

I may have overcooked the tomatoes as they simply released too much juices.  Nevertheless, it tasted pretty decent.  Unfortunately, DS2 doesn't like it.  The good thing about my son is, even though he doesn't like the food, he will still try to finish/eat as much as he could.  I'm definitely going to cook this again, but probably not so soon.

Simple Tomato Stir Fry
4 medium globe tomatoes, chopped into large chunks
2-3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
3-4 shallots, halved then thinly sliced
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

  1. Heat wok/pan to medium high heat and add vegetable oil.
  2. Toss in garlic and shallots and stir-fry till fragrant and a light golden brown on the garlic.
  3. Add tomatoes. Give it a quick stir.
  4. Add oyster sauce. Mix it into the tomatoes. Tomatoes should be releasing some juices at this point but still retaining some firmness. Do a quick taste. If needed, add more oyster sauce.
  5. Plate up and enjoy!

My son likes diced tomatoes and bacon in his scrambled eggs...

I guess the hard part is finding the right tomatoes for this application.

Thanks for the link back!
