My Chinese friend, Ruth Fung, who with her husband serve as missionaries in Europe, shared this recipe with me at a cooking demonstration at Black Forest Academy. The use of oyster sauce, sesame oil, and soy sauce give the soup a very authentic flavor.


Yield: 8 servings



  • 8 C. (2 liters) chicken broth
  • 1 C. (140 g) frozen peas
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 8 oz. (200 g) ground pork or chicken
  • 1 T. oil

    Flavorings: soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt, sugar, sesame oil Optional garnish: green onions



1. Marinate meat with flavorings (about 2 tsp. of each) for 20-30 minutes.

2. Brown the meat in 1 T. oil in a skillet, breaking it up into small pieces. Set aside.

3. Bring soup stock to boil. Add pork and peas; boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add beaten egg, stirring quickly.

4. Garnish with green onions if desired.
