Egg Drop Soup

(2 Votes)

You won't believe how easy it is to make Egg Drop Soup, a famous -- and famously delectable -- Chinese take-out dish. You're gonna impress your friends with your restaurant-worthy culinary skills!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup thin angle-sliced scallions (1 to 2 scallions)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan, bring 3-1/2 cans of broth to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in the sesame oil and reduce the heat to low.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 can of broth. Add to the soup, stirring constantly. With a fork, slowly stir the beaten eggs into the soup, forming egg strands.
  3. Stir in the scallions and soy sauce then remove from the heat. Serve immediately.
