ingredients

1 pound pork butt or boneless chicken breasts, julienned
Marinade (recipe below)
1 gallon chicken broth
1 pound firm tofu, julienned
1 cup julienned bamboo shoots
1/2 cup julienned carrots
1/2 cup julienned fresh shiitake mushrooms (or reconstituted dried black mushrooms)
1/2 cup julienned celery
1 cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce or Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon white pepper (or to taste)
1 cup cornstarch paste (made from equal parts cornstarch and
water)
6 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons Kikkoman Preservative-Free Non-GMO Toasted Sesame Oil
4 green onions, chopped

directions

In bowl, mix pork with Marinade; set aside. Bring chicken broth to boil. Add pork, tofu, bamboo shoots, carrots, mushrooms and celery. Return to boil, stirring gently to separate pork shreds. Stir in soy sauce, vinegar and pepper. Taste soup and adjust seasonings. Slowly stir enough cornstarch paste into simmering soup to thicken lightly. Slowly drizzle eggs into broth in thin stream. When egg curds set, gently stir in sesame oil. Garnish each serving with green onions.

To make Marinade: In bowl, lightly beat 1 egg. Mix in 1 tablespoon each soy sauce, dry sherry, cornstarch and vegetable oil; cover and refrigerate unless using immediately.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
