Turn Leftovers to a Quick and Easy Lunch - Fried Tortillas

With some Shredded Pork with Bean Sauce and some home-made Flour Tortillas leftovers from the day before, I add some more ingredients and serve a quick and easy lunch (for two) on the next day - Fried Tortillas (Chao-Bing).

1. 1-1/2 cups Shredded Pork with Bean Sauce
2. 12 small flour tortillas cut in 1/3" x 2" strips

3. 1 cup green beans diagonally cut in 1-1/2" sections
4. 1 carrot peeled and cut in strips
5. 3/4 cup shredded green onions
6. 2 eggs
7. 1/2 cup chicken broth
8. cooking oil
9. salt

1. Beat eggs.  Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a skillet until medium high, pour 1/2 beaten eggs into skillet, tilt to coat the bottom evenly.  Cook egg mixture until set on underside but still slightly wet on top.  Flip the egg sheet and cook until the other side is set as well.  Make another egg sheet in same manner.
2. Cut the egg sheets into 1/3" x 2" strips.
3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil to hot, stir-fry green beans for 30 seconds and push them to one side of the wok, add carrots to stir-fry for another 1 minute.  Mix green beans and carrots and season with dash of salt.  Add cooked shredded pork and mix well.  Add chicken broth and bring it to boil, then add tortilla strips,green onions and egg strips, mix well.

The Fried Tortillas was served with a bowl of clear soup made with chicken broth, Bok Choy and sliced mushroom.
