Chinese Recipes from Razzle Dazzle Recipes


Hot and Sour Soup

1/4 pound pork or chicken
1 cake bean curd, tofu
3 to 4 Chinese dried mushrooms, soaked
1 pint good stock
1 tablespoon rice wine or sherry
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon corn flour

Thinly shred the pork, bean curd and the mushrooms.

Bring the stock to a rolling boil, add the pork, bean curd and mushrooms, simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, then add wine, soy sauce, pepper, vinegar and salt.

Now blend the corn flour with a little cold water to make a smooth paste, pour into the soup slowly, stirring all the time.

Serve as soon as the soup thickens.

A small amount of finely shredded bamboo shoots and a lightly beaten egg may be added to the soup in order to make it into an even thicker and more substantial dish.
