I make egg foo yung out of my leftover pork loin roast and it is great. I use the pork gravy and add a little soy sauce for flavor.

If I am low on gravy, I make up a packet or two of the pork gravy or brown gravy mixes and add to the homemade gravy. I have never used water chestnuts but do add soy sauce to the eggs along with some garlic salt.

This is the best. The sherry makes it! 3/4 cups chicken broth, 2 tbsp. soy, 1 tbsp. dry sherry and 1 tbsp cornstarch.

Combine in saucepan and wisk till boiling and thickened. Enjoy!
