directions

  • Bring the 4 cups of chicken stock, grated ginger, sesame oil& soy sauce to a boil.
  • In a small cup, make a slurry by combining the cornstarch& 2 tablespoons of chicken stock.
  • Stir until dissolved.
  • Slowly pour the cornstarch slurry into the stock& stir until thickened.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Pour in the eggs slowly while continuously stirring the soup in the same direction with either a fork or a single chopstick.
  • The egg will spread& feather.
  • Turn off the heat& add the scallions.
  • Lightly season to taste with salt& white pepper& serve immediately.
  • I like to garnish the soup with wide, crisp Chinese noodles.

    This recipe was really easy and delicious. The only change I made was by adding one chicken cube, mostly just for my personal flavor preference. Very filling for one, might I add! :]

    This is by far the best recipe out there! Tastes like the egg drop I've had in restaurants, even better than some. Don't understand why there are not many, many reviews. Come on people, you gotta make this!! Super recipe Alan, thanks!
