Hot and Sour Soup with Cabbage Stalks

Hot and Sour Soup with Cabbage Stalks

I discovered a new taste of Chinese cabbage by cutting in a different way.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chinese cabbage stalks
3
Carrot
a small amount
Ground chicken or pork (or ham)
50 g
★Chicken stock granules
2 teaspoons (5 g)
★Soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons
★Vinegar
2 tablespoons
★Salt and pepper
a small amount
Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Egg (beaten)
1
Ra-yu
as needed
Scallions (for garnish)
as needed

Steps

1. Cut the Chinese cabbage into 4 cm lengthwise and 5 mm width. Cut the carrot into thin strips so that it cooks through quickly. Match the length with the Chinese cabbage. Dissolve the katakuriko in double the amount of water.
2. Put the ground meat into a pot, and stir-fry over medium heat using chopsticks. When the colour of the meat has changed, add the Chinese cabbage and carrot, and briefly stir-fry.
3. Pour in 700 ml of water. When it starts to boil, skim off the scum, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Add the ★ seasonings, and adjust the taste. Add the katakuriko dissolved in water to thicken.
4. Swirl in the beaten egg little by little, and drizzle a few drops of ra-yu spicy chili sesame oil. Sprinkle scallions for garnish, and it's done.
5. Use the leftover Chinese cabbage in a miso soup the next day, or parboil in salted water and make Chinese cabbage marinated in sauce.
