Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a pot, bring chicken or pork broth to a boil. Add shredded chicken or pork and cook until it is no longer pink. If using tofu, drain and cut it into small cubes before adding it to the pot. Cook for a few minutes until the meat is cooked through or the tofu is heated.
  • Step 2: Add sliced mushrooms and bamboo shoots to the pot. Stir in vinegar, soy sauce, and Sriracha sauce. Season with white pepper and salt to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  • Step 3: In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch with a little water to create a slurry. Slowly pour the slurry into the pot while stirring continuously. This will help thicken the soup. Cook for a few more minutes until the soup reaches the desired consistency.
