Excellent! We eat this all the time. I made a few changes to make the recipe even easier to make. I used 9 cups water with 3T chicken boullion granules frozen sweet white corn and only 2 eggs. This a favorite in our home! Read More

My kids REALLY wanted to make this dish after a recent trip to a Chinese restaurant. It's pretty tasty but surprisingly spicy. Sadly it was too spicy for my kids to enjoy. We'll make it again but we'll leave out the vast majority of the white pepper. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I have been wanting to try a recipe like this one and finally did it tonight--so simple and delicious! I forgot to add the sesame oil but that was just fine. I also used soy sauce in place of the osyter sauce since I didn't have it on hand and I didn't put in fresh corn only the can of creamed corn which was perfect. I halved the recipe (thanks to Allrecipes for the conversion option!) and it made just enough for two. I will definitely will be making this again! Read More

I used one teaspoon of soy sauce instead of oyster sauce because oyster sauce is very salty and is used more for flavoring stir fry foods. Other than that it's a very good recipe. Read More

Very comfortable tasty soup. Thank you. Changes we made: 1) didn't have oyster sauce so used some soy - that tasted fine. 2) Didn't add additional fresh or frozen corn just the creamed corn we had been given and needed to use up (I've got an intolerance for corn so though I eat some I don't pile it on when I do) 3) Sauteed an onion before making the soup and included that in the soup... 4) offered chopped left over beef or pork....... yum! Changes I might try next time: a) might use frozen corn instead of creamed corn b) might saute celery garlic and ginger with the onion c) might include chicken or fish. // My two youngest children ate this and ate this and ate this until it was all gone. Hubs enjoyed this as did I. Our second oldest son didn't care for one of our substitutions (the soy sauce). I don't know if he'll enjoy this more with the oyster sauce called for in the recipe. Will try to have some on hand for next time. Thanks again! - well 2nd son doesn't love the oyster sauce either. We prefer the soy....??? go figure.... perhaps we just enjoyed that first meeting of this soup and look forward to it just like that??? Thanks either way! Read More
