Categories : Oriental Soups And Stews

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 cups canned chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon dry sherry
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 whole scallion, thinly sliced

Combine broth, salt, pepper, and sugar in a sauce pan. Heat just to boiling. Add cornstarch mixture to saucepan. Stir until the soup is thickened, about 1 minute. Add sherry and stir. With chopstick or a wooden spoon gently stir the soup as you slowly pour in the egg. The egg will form delicate shreds in the soup. Remove from heat and garnish with scallions.
