I made this as describeed. And it was wonderful. Unofrtuanately I allowed my youngest daughter to express an opinonn on my effors [adopted at 7 from Nothern China] and clearly it was not spicy enough for her. A tablespoon of chili-garlic sauce solved that problem. She has already reserved her portion for breakfast and lunch. Thank you so much. This is the first time I have been able to create a H&S Soup that met her approval. Too_Tired
great stuff. Hot and Sour is our favourite Chinese soup. We like it a little more sour than this recipe and I made up the difference with lemon juice rather than vinegar.
We enjoyed this dish, although it is not something I would make on a regular basis. After original tasting we added more white pepper and more vinegar to our tastes. Would make again
Great soup!! I run out of white pepper and I used some Cayenne instead. It made just a little hotter. My DD and I loved it. Thank you Hey Jude.
Hot and Sour is one of my favorite soups, and this recipe was great!My DD does'nt really care for Hot and Sour, and she liked this.Followed it exactly, except for adding a tad more rice wine vinegar, and some dried red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
excellent soup, easy to follow recipe.I myself liked a little bit more vinegar and white pepper. For a twist try addind a tablespoon of hot chili paste reall kicks it up a notch and adds a good flavor
Superlative! Hey Jude, you have done it again. I love this soup. I followed the recipe as written, but since I was using homemade double-strength chicken stock, I added the cup of shiitake soaking water for extra flavor. I wasn't sure what kind of vinegar to use, so tried some locally made Philippine vinegar I brought back from a vacation, with very pleasing results. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
