Egg Drop Soup

I love egg drop soup. I had some on Sunday from the Chinese takeout place (and I never get Chinese, I just don't love it) but I loved that soup. So yellow, so thick, perfect flavor.

So today I made my own. EVERY recipe I found online called for chicken stock, so, I used Tyler Florence's recipe that I found on Foodnetwork.com. It was so basic, and it was just like almost every other egg drop soup recipe I've found.

My dilemma? I just don't get the whole chicken stock thing. Well, I do because for flavor, but overall the taste was just too chicken-ey and I didn't like the soy sauce in there. It's okay, I added another egg hoping that would help, but it's just not the same.

I want the really thick, really yellow, really good egg tasting soup they have in the restaurant!


  1. you blog just ate my comment. grr! anyway I said that the recipe I have on mine is pretty brothy... but I use vegetable broth. I have had Egg Flower soup with that gelatinous broth before... Im wondering if maybe its Cantonese cuisine rather than just Mandarin Chinese. Hmm... now I am curious! I am going to help you find out!

  2. If you find a good egg drop soup let me know!!! I love egg drop soup too. :-)
