Sauteed Choysum and Thousand-Years Eggs

Another choysum recipe from my kitchen, sauteed with thousand-years egg. It sounds strange, doesn't it? Thousand-years eggs (皮蛋, pídàn) is preserved duck eggs in salted clay. It may taste unique for people who haven't tasted it yet. I usually add it into my congee (please see my recipe Pork Congee). This time I add it into sauteed choysum, this dish is also very common in chinese restaurants in Asia. Thousand-years eggs could be bought in some Asia grocery stores.
