Authentic Hot and Sour Soup

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.

Restaurant Style Chinese Sesame Chicken (Hoo Approved)

Sesame chicken is one of our favorite chinese take out dinners.

If you thought you couldn’t make it at home think again.

It may take a little time but the advantages are undeniable.

1. It’s cheaper.

2. You made it so you know exactly what is in the recipe.

3. You can adjust the seasonings according to your taste.

Ingredients:

  • 3 whole boneless chicken breasts

Marinade

Sauce

Frying

  • peanut oil (3 1/2-4 cups)

Directions:

Mix marinade ingredients together and toss chicken pieces to coat

Let marinate for 20 minutes.

Deep fry the chicken until golden brown.

I used dark meat legs and wings for my recipe.

Sauce:

Mix sauce ingredients together in a small pot and bring to a boil stirring continuously.

Turn heat to low and keep sauce warm until you are ready for use.

The sauce is excellent! I strongly advice you to double the recipe for the sauce. It is great on the chicken and can be used later for dipping vegies and meat.

Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan until golden.

Put the chicken on a serving dish.

Spoon the sauce over the chicken.

Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.

Serve sesame chicken with white or fried rice.

Enjoy this at home “take out” meal experience.

For what we would have paid for 2 people to eat out I served a lot of food to 8 people.

It took less than an hour to prepare and serve.

This is gmom and Hoo (enjoying his Library time).

Peace out.
