This idea comes from a good friend. I love pinto beans as a side dish, in chili and burritos, and as refried beans. This is a side dish and sounds very tasty. All measurements are approximations until I make this and verify the amounts. I am going to pressure the beans but the canned amount will be stated as well. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Prepare the beans either by draining and rinsing 2 cans or by cooking from dry beans. From dry, drain after cooking them.
  2. In a large non stick pan on medium high heat, when hot, add the sausage, garlic, and onion. Cook, breaking up the sausage with the spatula, until almost cooked through. Drain off most of the fat, not all, as that is flavor for the beans.
  3. Add the bell pepper, green chilies, tomatoes, and mix together.
  4. Add the beans and Cajun seasoning, mix together.
  5. Simmer until the bell pepper is tender.
  6. Serve as a side dish.

These are very good! I enjoy these often when I go to other provinces. This recipe is for 4 omelets, normally when this is served, in Thailand, it is huge so think family style, meaning placed on the table and everyone helps themselves to it.

For starters, a salted duck egg is very salty, so if you never use salt in cooking or have to limit your salt intake you will want to take a miss on this recipe. This recipe was originally written using a raw salted duck egg, which I have never seen, only the had boiled variety, but I will explain how to use each type. This is a very common Chinese dish, on my to cook list.

Ingredients
For the Marinade
Use this if using a hard boiled salted egg
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Mix the pork with all the marinade ingredients except the duck egg, water, and corn starch, stir the pork vigorously in one direction only. It is recommended to use a sturdy pair of chopsticks to do this. Then add the corn starch and mix that in well, stirring in the same direction as before.
  2. Slowly add enough room temperature water while stirring, yep, you guessed it, in the same direction as before. until the pork is light and fluffy. Let mixture marinate for 10 minutes or so.
  3. Heat up your steamer to boiling. Pat the pork mixture into a serving dish or plate that will fit in your steamer, you want the mixture to be about 3/4 of an inch thick.
  4. If using the raw salted egg, crack the egg over the pork patty putting the yolk in the center. Using a pair of plate lifters, carefully place the plate or dish into the steamer, cover and steam for 18 minutes. Remove from the steamer.
  5. If using a hard boiled salted egg, just place the dish or plate into the steamer without any egg on top, cover and steam for 18 minutes. While the patty is steaming, mix together the diced egg, tomatoes, and onion in a small bowl. When the patty is cooked and removed from the steamer, spoon the egg mixture over the top of the patty.
  6. Typically how this type of dish is served, the plate or dish with the patty is simply placed in the center of the table, the diners each have a plate of rice, and people just scoop up what they would like.
Recipe Notes

For the salted duck egg, these sell for 13 Baht each. The pork would be about 35 Baht/250 grams. For 3 servings, this is about 47 cents per serving.
