This is another version of the original soup, with the main ingredients being the potato, eggs, dumplings (wontons), and broth. For this version, the type of eggs was changed and I added Vietnamese sausage. This recipe is assuming you have dumplings (or wontons) ready made or already homemade and on hand, and hard boiled eggs on hand as well.

Instructions
  1. Add the broth to a small sauce pan and add the potato and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until the potatoes are almost fork tender, 8-10 minutes or so.
  2. Just when the potatoes are almost fork tender, add the eggs and Vietnamese sausage. Let this simmer for another 5-10 minutes or so to finish cooking the potatoes and to heat the eggs and sausage through. Vietnamese sausage is already cooked when you buy it, here you just need to heat it through.
  3. For the dumplings or wontons, you can do this two ways. You can pan fry them first then add to the broth, or for raw wontons, you can just add to the broth when you add the eggs and let them cook that way.
  4. When the potato is tender, season with salt and white pepper to taste and stir in some chopped coriander.
  5. Ladle into bowls with plenty of broth, sprinkle some of the coriander on the top and serve.

I got this from a friend, who had an Asian friend make this soup for him, and as my friend calls it, 'comfort soup, right up there with chicken noodle soup'. My friend never kept the recipe and just goes by how he remembers it, and it not only looks great, it tastes great! This is a simple to prepare soup with plenty of nutrients. I will be making several versions of this easy and delicious soup. This recipe is assuming you have dumplings (or wontons) ready made or already homemade and on hand, and hard boiled eggs on hand as well.

For the Spring Rolls
Servings: spring rolls
Instructions
For the Filling
  1. In a pot of boiling water, add the vermicelli cook for 2-4 minutes or until soft, drain, lightly chop, you want about 1 1/2 cups, an 80 gram packet is fine. It is ok if they are a bit underdone as the rolls get fried later. Set aside.
  2. A lot of the prep time is the shredding and chopping. Use a box shredder for the cabbage and carrots, Chop the mushrooms on a board. I doubled the recipe that is why there is so much.
  3. Fresh ground pork (I used pork loin for this which is lean, the mushrooms add the juiciness). I also had some shrimp we added, the shrimp were cleaned, deveined, and chopped. The shrimp is NOT cooked with the pork, add the shrimp at the very end if using.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large non stick pan (big pot if doubling the recipe), when hot, add the garlic and saute for a minute until fragrant then add the pork and break up the pork as it cooks until it just turns white, as it will get cooked again.
  5. To the pork, add the carrot, cabbage, and mushrooms and saute for several minutes until the veggies are good and wilted. Now mix in the cornstarch, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. Saute for about a minute or until the liquid is steamed off. You want the filling sticky, not watery. Taste and season with oyster sauce as needed.
  6. Add the cooked noodles and remove the pan or pot from the heat.
  7. Mix in the noodles and cool the filling, a hot filling means your spring rolls may burst (no one likes a sloppy spring roll). So just let the pan or pot cool, or spread the filling on a baking sheet and let cool, or even place in the fridge for 5 minutes.
To Assemble the Spring Rolls
  1. First thing is to make the 'glue' so in a small bowl or cup, mix together the cornstarch and water, set this aside but keep it handy, this is used to seal the rolls.
  2. Open the package of spring roll sheets. Carefully pull off one sheet and place smooth side down on a clean counter with one corner of the sheet facing you. Very important, place a damp towel on the unused sheets, if the sheets dry out they are hard to pull apart and will tear.
  3. Place a tablespoon or so of filling near the corner closest to you.
  4. Fold the bottom up over the filling
  5. Tightly roll, the filling will spread some, that is fine. When the roll is in the widest part of the pastry (left and right corners will be on the sides of the roll) fold each side towards the center. The roll should be about 5 inches long , and should look like an envelope.
  6. Continue to roll, and when there is just a pointy section at the end away from you, use your finger and apply some of the cornstarch slurry you made just a few minutes ago to the edges of the pointy section (just like sealing and envelope), continue to roll and seal the edge, and just pat that seam down with your fingers. There, you just made a spring roll.
  7. Repeat until you have either used all the filling or all the pastry sheets. 13 more to go.
  8. To fry these, heat about 1 inch of oil in a pot. When hot, add 4-5 spring rolls at a time and fry, turn often, until golden brown, These cook fast so keep an eye on them. Remove to paper towels to drain and fry the remaining rolls. Perfect color.
  9. Let cool for a few minutes then serve hot as is or serve with a dipping sauce of your choice. My Sweet & Sour Sauce is listed as a shortcut in the Recipe Notes section.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 50 Baht for the pork. I will wing about 3 servings from this (I like spring rolls), for 3 servings this is about 50 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Sweet & Sour Dipping Sauce.

Variants: 1. Bake instead of fry, place on a rack on a baking sheet, spray with oil all sides, bake in a 200 C (400 F) oven until golden brown. 2. For the filling, use cooked and chopped bacon, cooked hash browns, and Cheddar mixed in. 3. Place 3 or 4 raisins in each spring roll if using the original ingredients listed.

  1. In a bowl, mix together the sugar, garlic, and cornstarch, then add the ginger, soy sauce, and wine and mix again until well blended. Place the beef slices in a bowl and pour in half of the marinade, mix with the beef, cover and let marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a large non stick pan, a wok pan would be perfect, then add the broccoli and stir fry for 2 minutes then remove and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in same pan. Drain the beef and add to the pan, stir fry for 3 minutes then add the oyster sauce and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the remaining marinade and the beef broth.
  4. Cook while stir frying, that means stirring constantly, until the liquid evaporates and the mixture becomes thick, then add the broccoli and stir fry for 1 more minute to heat the broccoli through.
  5. Serve with steamed rice on the side.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the beef. For 4 servings, this is about $1.12 per serving.

Instructions
  1. Quickly rinse then slice the mushrooms, not too thin though. If using Shiitake, remove the stems and just use the caps.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pot over medium high heat, when hot, add half of the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper as desired and cook until browned, stirring often, then remove from the pot and set aside.
  3. Same pot, add another 1 tablespoon of oil plus butter. When the butter is melted add the garlic and onions, cook for about 30 seconds then add the remaining mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned and the bottom of the pot is brown as well, don't worry about that, that is flavor we are going to use.
  4. Add a splash of the stock to the pot and scrape up the brown from the bottom, when the bottom is clean and the brown bits are mixed into the liquid, add the rice and mix in, then add the rest of the stock.
  5. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until there is no liquid, til the pot to verify this.
  6. Remove from the stove, have the already cooked mushrooms and the spring onion ready, quickly remove the lid, dump in the cooked mushroom then the spring onion, and place the lid back on and let this sit for 10 minutes.
  7. Fluff rice with a spoon, and optionally stir in more butter if desired. Serve.
Recipe Notes

I will price this next time I get a load of mushrooms. I will say fair cost for now. This should be 4 servings as a main dish for a light meal, and 8 servings as a side dish.

  1. Trim off the root end of the mushroom bundle(s) and quickly rinse them.
  2. Divide the mushrooms into smaller bundles.
  3. Cut the bacon slices in half. Wrap half a slice of bacon around the middle of a mushroom bundle and secure with a toothpick.
  4. When you have all the bundles of mushrooms you want, heat a non stick pan to medium heat with a splash of olive oil, then as the bacon cooks you will have enough oil in the pan.
  5. Add the mushroom bundles to the pan, turning as needed to cook the bacon through.
  6. When the bacon is cooked, they are ready to serve and enjoy as a side dish or appetizer. I had some leftover bacon so I just cooked that as well.
