Stir Fried Chinese Okra with Salted Egg
We first tasted this dish at a local Taiwanese restaurant in town. It was so good that we kept coming back to order it. After a few trials in the kitchen, I finally found the winning recipe. Well, at least it won my hubby's approval.

A little note: I think that the salted duck eggs from Taiwan taste better than the others we found at Asian Supermarket.  I also prefer buying the Chinese Okra from local farmer market if they are in season.
