    I like to press the tofu before slicing, gets the water out so it can absorb the flavor of the soup.

    Made it today and everyone in my house thought it was very excellent.
    The instructions were easy to follow and the video presentation was great.
    The only ingredient not listed wasChili Paste which I believe is used in Northern China. Next time I will add some Chili Paste to give it an extra kick and experiment with the flavor.
    Thanks for sharing your recipes.
    I added some Chilli Pasted on my second cooking and I did not find any major improvements, so I will stay with the original version.

    Beautiful recipe, even on video. I will try it this week. Your nuanced touches and explanations behind those touches will improve the recipe for everyone who attempts. I love the way you only casually mention with some recipes that they would not be found within 10,000 territorial miles of the Mainland, but that you have tried them and find delicious, I believe that you recognize that many peoples’ uninitiated tastes might find authentic recipes as too…something. Yet you choose to walk the line with corn starch in hand to initiate us to flavors beyond our upbringings. Nicely done. Thank you!

    Hot and sour soup is my all time favorite Chinese soup. I tried this recipe and I must say that it’s absolutely DELICIOUS. It’s hot, peppery, spicy, and it opens up your nostrils like the way a real hot and sour soup should, lol. Thank you so much for posting this! It’s soooooo gooooood!

    Great recipe! Only change I made was that I was to add some dried lily flower (soaked like the shiitake and wood ears). Absolutely delicious and, as advertised, "better than takeout!" Adding the black vinegar and white pepper at the end really does make a difference.(When I reheated the soup the next day, I had to add some more black vinegar and white pepper before serving to get that "zing" back.)

    Thanks! A great recipe and so organized and easy to follow. I added bamboo shoots and soaked lily buds, because that’s how my favorite restaurants serves it. Also I added the mushroom/fungus soaking liquid with the stock, but followed the rest of your recipe to the letter. It takes just a bit of preparation but it’s not difficult. Thank you again for another great recipe.

    I live in North Las Vegas and our Chinese food here is horrible. I can cook wonderful Thai and Vietnamese food, as I had friends in Wash. DC. I can not do Chinese, it tastes like a white boy made it. I have not seen the dark soy, nor the black vinegar in any of the local markets, we have a Philippine market, Seafood city, so I may check there. In Texas, I could get woodear mushrooms anywhere. I bought the last Pkg's of shitake mushrooms as Smith's was discontinuing them. You would think in Vegas with our big Asian community, the food would be better.

    Thank you. I will definitely try this. I like hot and sour soup and it's one of the things I try when going to a new Chinese restaurant. If that is good, there's a good chance the other food they serve will be as well. A lot of places mess it up though. After watching this I suspect it's because they just make a large batch and the flavor of the pepper and vinegar just cooks away over time.

  83. Linda Kachur Posted on November 11, 2019 at 12:20 am

    The second time I made this soup it was greatly improved. I am partial to beef stock, and I used ground pork marinated in dark soy. I accidentally tossed the ginger in with #1 sauce, and it helped a great deal. I didn't like the white pepper and ginger taste the first time. I know that adding bean sprouts will water down the sauce, and it is so good to have it golden and thick. I added double the amount of starch for my preference. I added half a teaspoon of red chilli pepper black bean paste with oil and it was sensational. I didn't want to stray too much away from the authenticity of this recipe. Best soup I ever ate and it lasted 3 days very nicely.

    I finally got all my ingredients, ended up ordering them from Amazon. The soup was wonderful! I also made your recipe for egg foo yung and that also was SO good, the sauce was excellent! I am so happy. We have lived in Las Vegas for 2 years and this was the best Chinese food we have had. I do not understand why we can not get good Chinese here, like in Texas, Florida, Washington DC. They have wonderful Chinese, no need to make it yourself. We have ordered take out here in LasVegas that we have thrown out. This is how I found this channel, as we have to make it ourselves.
