Egg Drop Soup

Egg Drop Soup is a popular soup in the United States. However, I have never tasted a decent egg drop soup in the Chinese restaurants here, so much so that I dread and avoid Egg Drop Soup at all cost whenever I dine out. I frown at the sight of the goopy and MSG-laden soups served here. It all changed when I had Egg Drop Soup at Jesse, a little restaurant frequented by Chinese food connoisseurs in Shanghai, China.

The Egg Drop Soup served at Jesse was so mild and refreshing, with the sweet tang of fresh tomatoes. My Egg drop soup recipe closely replicates the version I had in Shanghai but slightly thickened with corn starch. It’s eggy, soothing, and utterly comforting, especially on a cold day.

This recipe is sourced from my best-selling Chinese cookbook “Easy Chinese Recipes.”

    Nice Recipe. Good tip on turning the heat off before adding egg. Otherwise egg will cook too quickly and there won’t be nice “egg drop”
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Sally says:

    The photo has red stuff in the soup but no reference to that in the recipe. The red looks like chili pieces. Also, the egg looks like it has cabbage mixed in. Is the photo attached to the correct recipe?

    Wow… simple recipe, add a scoop of jasmine rice to the bowl, slice of homemade bread and you have dinner! My kids loved it! This was a couple min prep and 15 min cooked, quick meal, quick clean up!

    I made this, and I must say, it was really bland and missing something. :(

  12. Eloise says:

    Hi Bee, how do you make your chicken broth? Would using a stock cube be an acceptable replacement? Thanks!

  13. Jag says:

    1. Great recipe. Thanks. One question on recipe measures:
    a.”1 3/4 cups (425 ml) homemade chicken broth”
    b.”1 cup (250 ml) water”

    2. The cup measures do not seem consistent? 3/4 cup= 188 ml? Please clarify.
