Chinese Take-Out: Egg Drop Soup

Chinese Take-Out: Egg Drop Soup created by Parsley

I've found it easier (and cheaper) to make Chinese food at home. No more waiting for the delivery driver to bring you cold food, no more waiting to be served in a restaurant, no more tipping. This is one of many Chinese recipes that I prepare, and we feast at home for a fraction of the price. The best part is, we know it is going to be good. I hope you enjoy this one of my many "stay at home" Chinese dishes.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large sauce pot, bring the chicken broth and soy sauce to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Taste and add more soy if needed.
  • Meanwhile, trim roots/tips and remove outer layer of scallions. Slice the scallions (white and green portions) to approximately 1/8 thick slices.
  • Combine the cornstarch with the cold water and mix well (no lumps).
  • Slowly add cornstarch mixture to the boiling broth while constantly stirring to desired consistency. (you may not need it all). Stir while boiling for 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to a low boil, add white pepper and then "drizzle" the beaten eggs "slowly" into the broth while stirring constantly. The eggs should be forming into small streams of ribbons. Continue to gently boil 1 minute.
  • Remove pan from heat and add the sliced scallions to the soup.
  • Serve the soup immediately, stirring the pot before each serving is dished.
  • Enjoy!

    So simple yet so good, I was able to cut this down to a very satisfying dinner for one. Might try adding just a very tiny bit of ginger.<br/>Thanks for the post.

    I love soup and this was right on! So very tasty and easy. I used homemade chicken broth and added a few more scallions than called for. Served with recipe#210937#210937 and recipe#450315#450315. Next time I make this (and I definately will) I will add some mushrooms (slivered), snow peas, and shrimp like twissis suggested for a perfect lunch/dinner. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
