MANDARIN-SOUP(SP)        USENET Cookbook        MANDARIN-SOUP(SP)
MANDARIN SOUP
     MANDARIN-SOUP - Bamboo shoot, pork, and mushroom 
soup
     I worked out this recipe in an attempt to duplicate 
the Man-
     darin Soup served at the Peking Royal Kitchen in 
Pittsburgh.
     My friends all agree that it is a good replica; 
some prefer
     my version to the "real thing."
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)
     4         dried straw mushrooms
     1/4 lb    lean pork
     1/2 cup   bamboo shoots
     2 pieces  fresh bean curd
     4 cups    chicken stock
     1 tsp     salt
     1 Tbsp    dark soy sauce
     2 Tbsp    cornstarch mixed with
     1/4 cup   water
     1         egg
     1         scallion, chopped
     1 Tbsp    sesame oil
PROCEDURE
          (1)  Soak mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes.
               Drain, reserving liquid.
          (2)  Cut pork, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, bean 
curd into
               thin strips.
          (3)  Combine stock and reserved mushroom liquid 
in a
               saucepan. Bring to a boil.
          (4)  Add salt, soy sauce, pork, bamboo shoots, 
mush-
               rooms. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
          (5)  Add bean curd and again bring to a boil. 
Add small
               amount of hot liquid to cornstarch paste, 
stir-
               ring. Add mixture to pan and cook for 
1 or 2 more
               minutes.
          (6)  Beat egg lightly and slowly add it to 
hot soup.
               Stir once, gently.
          (7)  Remove soup from heat.  Sprinkle with 
chopped
               scallion and sesame oil. Serve immediately.
NOTES
     The quality of the chicken stock makes a huge difference 
in
     a recipe like this. Use fresh stock if you can, 
or buy the
     best grade of canned chicken stock you can find.
RATING
     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 20 minutes waiting and 
20 minutes
     preparing.  Precision: Measure spices and seasonings.
