When made with the best ingredients, this soup is redolent of mushrooms, the pepper is aromatic but not biting, and the soup has a broth like consistency rather than gelatinous from too much cornstarch. Traditionally this soup is made with pork and pork broth, but any meat and any broth will work. In fact, it is particularly good with duck. For the best results, look for dried shiitake mushrooms ..

Once you track down the somewhat exotic ingredients for this soup-they keep in the freezer for months-it can be made in minutes. Best of all, it doesn’t require broth, although shrimp broth would give it a wonderful flavor.
