    Recipe Introduction

    Hubby loves PF Chang's Hot & Sour soup but we rarely go there as we're often on a budget. This is a great way to eat the restaurant style soup at home.

    List of Ingredients

    6 ounces chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
    1 quart chicken stock
    1 cup soy sauce
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    6 ounces bamboo shoots, cut into strips (canned is perfect)
    6 ounces wood ear mushrooms, cut into strips (or canned straw mushrooms, if woodear can't be found)
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    1/2 cup water
    2 eggs, beaten
    4 ounces white vinegar
    6 ounces silken tofu, cut into strips


    Cook chicken strips till done. Set aside.

    Bring stock to boil. Add soy sauce, white pepper, bamboo, mushrooms and chicken.

    Stir. Let cook for 3 minutes.

    While cooking, in separate bowl combine cornstarch and water to make slurry.

    Add slurry a little at a time and stir until thick (all slurry may not be necessary, so add as much as necessary for desired thickness - I used about 3/4 of slurry).

    Add eggs while stirring and cook for 30 seconds or until eggs are done. 5Turn off heat. Add vinegar and tofu, give it a quick stir. Spoon into bowls and enjoy!
