How to make it

  • 1. Place tofu in pie plate and set heavy plate on top.
  • Weight with 2 heavy cans; let stand at least 15 minutes (tofu should release about 1/2 cup liquid).
  • Whisk 1 tablespoon soy sauce, sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon cornstarch in medium bowl; toss pork with marinade and set aside for at least 10 minutes (but no more than 30 minutes).
  • 2. Combine 3 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water in small bowl and mix thoroughly; set aside, leaving spoon in bowl.
  • Mix remaining 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch with remaining 1 teaspoon water in small bowl; add egg and beat with fork until combined.
  • Set aside.
  • 3. Bring broth to boil in large saucepan set over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low; add bamboo shoots and mushrooms and simmer until mushrooms are just tender, about 5 minutes.
  • While broth simmers, dice tofu into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • Add tofu and pork, including marinade, to soup, stirring to separate any pieces of pork that stick together.
  • Continue to simmer until pork is no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
  • 4. Stir cornstarch mixture to recombine.
  • Add to soup and increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until soup thickens and turns translucent, about 1 minute. Stir in vinegar, chili oil, pepper, and remaining 3 tablespoons soy sauce; turn off heat.
  • 5. Without stirring soup, use soupspoon to slowly drizzle very thin streams of egg mixture into pot in circular motion.
  • Let soup sit 1 minute, then return saucepan to medium-high heat.
  • Bring soup to gentle boil, then immediately remove from heat.
  • Gently stir soup once to evenly distribute egg; ladle into bowls and top with scallions.
  • To Wisp the eggs:
  • 1. Turn off heat so surface of soup is calm, then use spoon to drizzle egg onto surface in thin streams.
  • 2. Let sit for 1 minute.
  • Turn heat back on and stir gently to finish cooking egg and break into ribbons.
