Beefy Hot and Sour Soup / Juneća kiselo-ljuta juha

A few days ago I’ve made an enormous pot of super tasty beef broth. I’ve decided to spice things up a little, so I turned a portion of it into a delicious hot and sour soup. Any broth would work here, though, so feel free to use whatever you currently have on hand. Also, any veggie combination will also do well, so adapt the things to your liking.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil

3 large carrots

2 sweet red horn peppers

2 chili peppers

4 garlic cloves

Handful of shiitake mushrooms

Block of smoked tofu

4 spring onions

8 cups beef broth

¼ cup soy sauce

Pinch of red pepper flakes

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

¼ cup corn starch

2 eggs

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely slice all the vegetables, mushrooms and tofu. Set aside and reserve a bit of peppers, chili and green parts of onions for garnishing. Add the oil to a large heavy pot and then add in the chopped vegetables one by one in this order: carrots, horn peppers, chili peppers, garlic, mushrooms, tofu and spring onions. Briefly stir-fry before adding a new veggie, so the flavors have time to develop. Pour broth over everything, then add in soy sauce, red pepper flakes, sesame oil and vinegar. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Dissolve corn starch in a few tablespoons of water, then slowly pour the mixture into the simmering soup, while stirring the soup constantly. The soup will quickly begin to thicken, so turn off the heat when desired consistency is reached. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and slowly pour them into the soup. They’ll cook immediately since the soup is piping hot. Stir again to break the eggs. Serve hot, sprinkled with reserved peppers, chili and green onion parts.

Neki dan sam napravila enormni lonac finog goveđeg temeljca. Odlučila sam stvari učiniti malo interesantnijima, pa sam dio upotrijebila za ukusnu kiselo-ljutu juhu. Bilo koji drugi temeljac bi ovdje funkcionirao, pa slobodno upotrijebite ono što vam je pri ruci. Također, i kombinaciju povrća isto možete modificirati prema vlastitom ukusu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja

3 velike mrkve

2 slatke crvene roga paprike

2 čili papričice

4 češnja češnjaka

Pregršt gljiva shii taka

Komad dimljenog tofua

4 mlada luka

8 šalica goveđeg temeljca

¼ šalice soja sosa

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja

2 žlice jabučnog octa

¼ šalice kukuruznog škroba

2 jaja

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće, gljive i tofu. Izdvojite za kasnije malo narezanih paprika, čilija i zelenja od mladog luka. Dodajte ulje u veliki lonac, pa jedno po jedno ubacujte povrće ovim redoslijedom: mrkve, paprike, čili, češnjak, gljive, tofu i mladi luk. Kratko miješajte i pržite svako povrće prije nego ubacite novo, a sve kako bi se okusi bolje razvili. Prelijte preko svega temeljac i dodajte soja sos, sušeni čili, sezamovo ulje i ocat. Pustite neka zavrije i krčkajte 5-10 minuta. Kušajte i prilagodite začine.

Otopite kukuruzni škrob u par žlica vode i polako ulijevajte u juhu koja se krčka, s time da juhu bez prestanka miješate. Juha će se brzo početi zgušnjavakti, pa ugasite vatru kada dostigne željenu gustoću. Razmutite jaja u maloj zdjelici pa ih polako ulijevajte u vruću juhu. Ona će se odmah skuhati. Još jednom promiješajte da razbijete jaja na manje komadiće. Poslužite vruće, posipano sa paprikom, čilijem i zelenjem od luka.
