Preparing homemade stock takes time - but this simple, nutritious, low-fat soup takes only a few moments. Remember the thin strips of meat I carved from the pork leg in yesterday’s post? A couple of those would make an excellent addition to this soup! This quantity serves 4.
Pork Consommé with Sliced Mushrooms:
4 c. pork broth, well skimmed of fat
8 very thin raw pork strips (optional)
1/2 tsp. sesame oil (found in the ethnic foods section of your supermarket)
1 c. hot, sliced, fried mushrooms, blotted dry of fat
2 green onions, angle-cut in 1-in. pieces
In a medium pot, heat broth until almost boiling. Remove from heat, stirring in pork strips and sesame oil (The heat of the broth will cook the pork). Ladle equally into bowls. Divide mushrooms and green onions equally among four bowls. Serve at once.
