Egg Flower Soup. Bring the chicken broth, white pepper, and sesame oil to a boil in a saucepan. While stirring slowly in one direction to get the soup moving, pour the beaten egg into the soup in a slow but steady stream. The name "Egg Drop" comes from how the soup is made—dropping raw egg into hot soup.
Remove ginger and green onion before pouring over eggs. Crack the egg into a bowl and lightly beat it with a fork or whisk. Slowly pour the egg into the pot, stirring with a chopstick in a circular motion until long threads form. You can cook Egg Flower Soup using 10 ingredients and 5 steps. Here is how you cook that.
