      This version is unlike any other hot and sour soup I've had. It was delicious. It reminded me of a combination of egg drop and hot and sour soup. I made 1/2 recipe and used 2 cans chicken broth, 2 large wood ear mushrooms (not the black mushrooms) and used ham (not pork), and all other ingredients as listed. Thanks for posting this one.

      This made a very yummy soup. A favorite of DH and mine when we eat out, this turned out great. I omitted tofu, ham and chili oil (b/c I forgot to pick them up at the store!) and subbed chicken for pork (chicken was ok, pork would have been better). This was a good way to have lots of mushrooms! ps it was even better the next day!

      This was a good soup but I did have to add more flavorings. I increased soy sauce to 2 1/2 T, sesame oil to 2 tsp, sugar to 2 tsp, 2 tsp chili oil and much more salt and pepper. I used all the ingredients and additionally topped it with chopped fresh tomato just before serving. Once these ingredients were increased, this turned out to be very good soup. Thank you Liara for posting this recipe.
