For Prep
  1. Cut the bitter melon in half lengthwise. Discard the seeds including the soft white core using a spoon. Cut it in half with a thickness of 0.5-1 cm in width.
  2. Place the bitter melon in a bowl, add 1 teaspoon of salt and stir (do not rub) to cover the pieces of bitter melon with salt. Leave for 10 minutes, then rinse and drain well. This is to get rid of bitterness.

For cooking
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet or pan with high heat. Add the tofu and cook both sides until browned about 2-3 minutes. Remove from frying pan/pan.
  2. Add sesame oil to the skillet/pan with high heat. Add the pork and cook for about 2 minutes until the slices are almost cooked.
  3. Add bitter melon to the skillet/pan and stir slowly without damaging the bitter melon. Cook for about 1 minute until the bitter melon surface starts to mature. If you like bitter melons that have a softer texture, you can cook until you get the preferred texture.
  4. Return the tofu to the skillet/pan. Add seasoning ingredients and stir to make the spices more even.
  5. Add eggs and leave for 15 seconds without mixing. With a strong grip on the pan/pan, stir the ingredients and mix the eggs with other ingredients.
  6. Reduce the heat to low. Add bonito flakes and stir slowly, then turn off the heat. Serve immediately.


Note: Goya has a nice, mild and bitter taste, but if you are not smart with the bitter taste, you can soak bitter melon in hot water for 30 seconds before stirring to help reduce the taste. Or, add a little oyster sauce to help ward off the bitter taste of melon.
