Amazing 😋

Victoria says:

that looks like a "souper awesome broth"! 😉

AL WP says:

This looks amazing, my family loves this. However, since I’m allergic to shellfish 🦐 – I ponder, how often is dried shrimp used in making this? This makes sense when I think I’m being smart dining out, and my tongue 👅 swells up! How common is shrimp in this soup? 😳

Joe says:

does anyone have a brand of dry shrimp they would recommend?

Anastacia Vokocha says:

I made this yesterday was yummy thanks a lot.

So ready to try this for my mom and dad. They both love egg drop soup but they can never get it right. Hopefully, this will help me gain bragging rights in my house-hold lol.

Lane RAA says:

I used Fish Sauce instead of Shrimp do to allergies. I also added some Corn. Turned out fantastic.

Thank you

Where do I get white pepper? I don't believe that I have ever seen white pepper in my local grocery store. I looked once cuz I wanted to get the stuff to make lumpia. I am sad, this is the 3rd or 4th video I've watched and every one of them calls for white pepper. :'(

Penny says:

I was looking for a great egg drop soup recipe, and just finished watching at least 15 videos and was about to give up until I found yours! OMG thank you so much.

Can I use chicken legs instead of the thighs

spiritcloud says:

Made this and came out great, I edited to what I have and like, used leftover rotisserie from Costco, store bought broth, tablespoon of soy sauce ( broth was very low sodium and I doubled the recipe ) and added 1 diced carrot.

Mike Logan says:

Looks delicious. I get my egg drop from restaurants. I’d love to make, but I’m the sole soup lover. My trick to taking up egg drop a notch is adding in about a half of one of those take out Asian mustard packets. Stir and you’ve add another level.

J024 says:

I never understood the chicken thigh hype. I find them so boring lols

Belle Abalos says:

I dont make this with the chicken since I make this as a quick snack (or with the shrimp since we dont have it) , but I really appreciate the tips on making store-bought stock flavorful and on thickening the soup. Definitely made this lots of times ever since I watched this video ❤
