Appetizer – Egg Drop Soup

09.12.2010


Yesterday we had our friends over for a full 5 course feast. We had just as much fun eating it all as we did cooking it. Lately we’ve been watching “Master Chef”, FOX’s newest Gordon Ramsey reality show. Basically, a bunch of amateur foodies cook as professional chefs would for $250k in cash, a cookbook deal and the coveted “Master Chef” title. Watching Chef Ramsey destroy the self esteem of amateurs had made me want to cook for some reason.

This is the menu:

Egg Drop Soup

Romaine Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Sweet and Sour Marinated Cucumbers

Smoked Beef Strips with Sesame Honey Soy Glaze

Curried Stir Fry with Smoked Peppers


Egg Drop Soup

Recipe

Stove
10 minutes
Medium High Heat

2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 5 teaspoons cold water
1 egg, lightly beaten

Over high heat, bring chicken stock to boil in medium saucepan and add the salt. Give cornstarch mix a quick stir to recombine it. Add to the pan and stir until stock becomes slightly thicker. Slowly pour in the egg and stir once gently. Immediately turn off the heat. Add more salt to taste.
