Hot & Sour Soup


Growing up my step mom would have wicked cravings for Hot & Sour Soup, which was always great because I would then get my favorite (Egg Foo Young). It wasn’t until my husband cracked open a long forgotten Chinese recipe book (The Thousand Chinese Recipe Book), that he became inspired to create a Paleo friendly Hot & Sour Soup…and I am so glad he did! This recipe is super simple, amazingly tasty. so much better than what I grew up with.

I hope you love this as much as my family does!

*1 1/2 cups of cooked pork (leftover pulled pork works best)
* 2 eggs
* 2 Tbsp Vinegar (with ground pepper to taste)
* 1 cup chicken stock (cold)
* 1 Tbsp Tapioca Flour
*1 1/2 Low Sodium Tamari Soy Sauce
* 5 cups of chicken stock

1. Crack eggs, mix and set aside.
2. Add Tapioca Flour, Tamari Soy Sauce, Salt to 1 cup of cold chicken stock. Set aside.
3. Combine vinegar  with the desired amount of ground pepper to small bowl. Set aside.
4. Chop up pulled pork and guess what? Set aside.
5. Add 5 cups of chicken stock to large pot. Bring to a bowl.
