This is the easiest egg drop soup I've made and it's good! I used a ratio of one can of chicken broth and 2 eggs to make it a little more filling. Green onion instead of minced was nice because it added color along with the taste. And I shook in a few drops of hot pepper sauce at the end along with the soy sauce. To make nicely shaped egg "shreds" in the soup, stir the broth in ONE direction. Slowly add the egg while stirring in that same direction.

This was the most awful thing I have ever tasted! When I had a spoonful, I gagged and spat it out. I followed the recipe perfectly, but it was so sour and salty. I would have to tell you that you should NOT try this recipe! Nobody ate any more than a spoonful, and it went to waste.

This is a great recipe! The broth was a little salty because of the cubes, so next time I will add another cup of water. Didn't have corn starch, so I used flour - and the chunks of flour that gathered made little yummy dumplings. VERY VERY EASY!!!!!!!!!!!

This recipe was easy and delicious. I would find soya sauce too powerful for this dish... so throwing in some green onions and ginger instead did the trick. The second time I made it I added mushrooms, which was a good complimentary texture to the egg.
