1. Marinate the ground pork with thin soy sauce and ground white pepper while you're preparing the other ingredients.
Crack the eggs into a bowl and add fish sauce. Whisk with a fork quickly until the eggs are very fluffy and light. This should take at least a minute or more.
2. Heat a wok to medium high and add a tablespoon of oil. Cook the shallots and peppers until almost tender. Then add the ground pork and cook until it's completely done. Remove from the wok and set aside.
Turn the heat on the work up to high and add 3-4 more Tablespoons of oil. Wait until it's very hot before adding your beaten eggs. You can test to see if it's ready by letting a drop of egg fall from your fork into the hot oil - if it sizzles and pops furiously, it's ready.
3. Swirl the wok so the egg coats the bottom of the pan. Add your cooked meat and vegetables and then mix into the egg. Once it's golden brown on one side, flip and cook on the other side.
Remove from the pan and eat immediately with fresh jasmine rice.
