Hot and Sour Soup Recipe

Servings: 4

This classic Chinese soup is pungent and flavorful with a good spicy punch and a silky texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz. dried wood ear mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, julienned
  • 1/4 cup straw mushrooms, washed, trimmed, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup firm tofu, diced small
  • 1/4 cup bamboo shoots, julienned
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • Water
  • 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and finely ground white pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions sliced thin, white and green parts

Preparation:

  1. Soak the mushrooms in the warm water for 15 minutes, drain and slice thin.
  2. Add oil to a good sized saute pan and heat.
  3. Season the pork with salt and pepper and when the oil is hot, add the pork and saute for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the straw mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bean curd, and wood ear mushrooms to the pan and saute.
  5. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
