Sipo Egg

This is probably one of the “old favorites” from family gatherings of my childhood.
For my whole life, still, I openly do not know why we call it “sipo”.
Given that I do not have a printed recipe of this on hand, I just had to recall and a bit of creativity to make this dish my own. It’s quite plain and simple to make so I guess that explains why I was able to at least have some veneer of the “original”!
Here’s what went into my version:
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 white onion bulb, diced
  • 1 pack Mixed Vegetables
  • 18 pcs hard-boiled quail eggs
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp Cream of Mushroom powder and dilute in a 1 cup of water.
  • 1 can nestles cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
Just saute the garlic, onion, and Mixed Vegetables together until they are a bit soft. Dump the rest of the ingredients (except the eggs) until you get the consistency you want for the sauce. Be careful not to overcook or they will shrink and be too “rubbery” to the bite. Toss in the egg and mix well. Serve hot.
PS My mom’s version includes chicken gizzard and diced Ham. I would gladly to put ham in too unfortunately, I can’t find here in UAE – thus, this simplified version…
