How to make it
- In a medium bowl, add the seasonings to the ground beef, adding the cornstarch last (use your fingers to mix in the cornstarch).
- Marinate the ground beef for 15 minutes.
- While the beef is marinating, bring the chicken stock or broth to a boil.
- Stir in the marinated ground beef, using chopsticks to break up any lumps. Add the sugar and pepper.
- Bring the soup back to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer for a few minutes to allow the ground beef to cook.
- Add frozen veg and noodles now.
- Taste and add extra salt if needed.
- If desired, add the extra 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with water and stir to thicken.
- Very slowly pour in the egg whites in a steady stream. Use a fork to gently stir the eggs in a clockwise direction until they form thin streams or ribbons.
