For the egg foo young: In a large bowl, combine eggs, lop cheong, pea shoots, green onions, corn starch, salt, and peppers. Beat to mix well. Set aside.

Heat oven to 200°F.

In a shallow, nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Carefully spoon ladleful of egg mixture into hot oil. Gently flip edges of patty over, and cook until light brown, about 2 minutes. With a large spatula, carefully turn patty and cook for another minute, or until patty is just set. Remove to heatproof platter, cover, and place in oven. Repeat until desired number of patties is prepared.
