Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place two types of dried mushrooms in separate bowls.
  • Add enough boiling water to each to cover the mushrooms.
  • Let stand until the mushrooms are soft.
  • Drain the mushrooms, squeezing them lightly.
  • *****Reserve the soaking liquid.
  • Cut off and discard the stems from the black mushrooms.
  • Cut the caps into thin strips.
  • Cut off any coarse, woody stems from the cloud ear mushrooms.
  • Cut the mushrooms into half-inch pieces.
  • Combine the stock and the mushroom liquid in a sauce pot.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add the mushrooms, pork, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, and white pepper.
  • Simmer 3 minutes.
  • Mix the cornstarch with the water until smooth.
  • Add the cornstarch mixture to the simmering soup, stirring constantly.
  • Simmer until the soup is lightly thickened.
  • Add the vinegar and sesame oil to the soup.
  • Slowly drizzle in the beaten egg, stirring slowly but constantly, so that the egg coagulates in thin shreds.
  • To serve, top each portion with a few slices of scallion and a pinch of chopped cilantro.
  • Note:
  • To cut the pork into julienne more easily,, partially freeze the meat first.
