BETTER THAN TAKEOUT – Easy Egg Drop Soup in 2 Ways [蛋花汤]


Hi everyone, welcome to Souped Up Recipes.
The weather is getting cold.
Now it is the perfect time to make some soup.
Let’s start with the simplest Chinese recipe
– Egg drop soup.
You probably ordered it many times from the
Chinese restaurant.
Today, I am going to show you 2 easy ways
to make it.
The ingredients are simple.
You will need 2 eggs.
Crack them and beat it well.
In a clean pot.
Pour in 2 cups of chicken stock.
You can also use water, but chicken stock
provides much more flavor.
Add some white part of spring onion.
Bring this to a boil.
While waiting, mix 1.5 tbsp of cornstarch
and 1.5 tbsp of water together.
When the chicken stock is boiling,
slowly pour in the cornstarch water
and stir it at the same time so it doesn’t
clump up.
In less than a minute, the stock should be
slightly thickened.
Next, it is the egg drop part.
Make sure you stir it while adding the egg.
In this way, you create an extra silky egg
drop soup.
You see these thin strength, that is what
you are looking for.
Add some salt and white pepper to taste.
Serve it in a bowl.
Sprinkle some spring onion.
This is the most basic egg drop soup that
you will find in your local Chinese restaurant.
In my family, we usually make the one that
has tomato in it.
You need to dice a tomato.
Slice it first.
Switch an angle and run your knife through
the slices,
then dice it.
Just like how you do to the onion.
In this way, you can get the tomato into fine
little pieces.
Add some oil to the pot.
Along with some aromatics – grated garlic,
ginger,
and a little bit white part of the spring
onion.
Stir them until fragrant.
Add in the diced tomato.
Saute it for about a minute.
You will see the tomato became saucy.
Add some sugar and a salt to taste.
If you want to be creative, you can add some
protein at this point,
such as minced meat, tofu slices.
I just want this soup to be simple.
Salt and sugar are enough to make a good flavor.
The rest of the steps are the same.
Bring this to a boil and pour in the cornstarch
water.
After the soup got thicken up,
stir in the egg as well.
Serve it in a bowl.
Sprinkle some spring onion.
This is the style that my family makes all
the time.
It has a little touch of sweet and sour taste.
It is very nice for such quick and easy soup.
Usually, this is not the only dish that you
will have on your dinner table.
I am serving it with some stir fry chicken
and white rice.
It is so soft, creamy, velvety.
It can go with almost any dish.
It is very cheap but it comforts your heart.
I hope you give this or my other recipes a
try soon.

New videos coming out every Wednesday.
I will see you next time.

    Too speed it up, we often use chicken broth you can buy at Chinese grocery… it's very handy, but Be careful. Most of powdered chicken broth contains too much sodium and generally too thick if you followed the directions. You might test it out for proper thickness before using it.
