Here on the frontier, There are falling leaves, Although my neighbors are all barbarions…And you? You are a thousand miles away. There are always two cups on my table.

Ingredients

Directions

Heat the oil in a wok or large pot over medium-high flame. Add the ginger.

Add in the mushrooms, chili paste, bamboo shoots, and chicken; cook and stir for 1 minute to infuse the flavor.

Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar in a small bowl.

Pour it into the wok and toss everything together – it should smell really fragrant.

Pour in the  Chicken Stock, bring the soup to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the tofu and cook for 3 minutes.

Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and stir until smooth. Mix the cornstarch paste into the soup and continue to simmer until the soup thickens.

Remove the soup from the heat and stir in 1 direction to get a current going, then stop stirring. Slowly pour in the beaten eggs in a steady stream and watch it spin around and feather in the broth (egg will cook immediately.)

Garnish the hot and sour soup with chopped green onions and cilantro before serving.

Yield: About 2 quarts

Now that is one beautiful bowl of delicious soup.

  2. Very nice, do you have a focus on cooking Chinese foods?

    • LOL! Not always. But with our budget as tight as it is and with several people to feed I make my own “take out” cuisine.
      It’s always so much better and gets those who are straying from the table and wasting their hard earned dollars on pretty gross food to come back home.
      Life is too short to spend it eating bad food.
      Not my momism for the day.
      Cheers!
