Hot Sour Spicy Soup
recipe from Jade Garden-Littleton, CO

2 ounce ham or bbq pork
1/2 cake bean curd
3 pieces Chinese dried black mushrooms and 1 dried woodear ( soaked well and softened in advance)
1 1/2 oz bamboo shoot strips
1 egg well beaten
6 cups soup stock
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons corn starch (dissolved in cold water in advance)
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Shred ham or bbq pork, bean curd and mushrooms and woodear into fine strips. Heat soup stock to boiling and add shredded items plus bamboo shoots into soup. Continue boiling for about 10 minutes, then season with soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Bring soup to boil again. Slowly pour in corn starch while stirring with wooden spoon to avoid settling of corn starch. When soup begins to thickens, add egg very slowly, in a thin stream. Add vinegar just before serving. Add sesame oil last.
