Learn how to make Chinese Egg Drop Soup!

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Chinese Sherry
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with two tablespoons with water
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, finely grated over a microplane
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated over a microplane
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 to 2 scallions, thinly sliced

Recipe Steps:

  • In a large sauce pan, bring the chicken stock, soy sauce, Sherry, ginger and garlic to a rolling boil.
  • Add cornstarch and cook through for 2-3 minutes. This will thicken the soup
  • Stirring gently, pour in the egg in a slow, steady stream. Slowly swirl the soup mixture with a chopstick.
  • Lower the heat to low, until the egg strands are cooked through (usually about one minute). You may need to add seasoning like more soy sauce or salt to taste.
  • When you are ready to serve, ladle soup into soup bowls and sprinkle green onion on top for garnish.
