Chinese Egg Drop Soup

2 c Chicken Broth
1 Egg (Room Temperature)


Heat the broth in a saucepan until it boils vigorously. Reduce the heat to a slow simmer (bubbles form and collapse BELOW the surface of the liquid). Break the egg into a cup and beat very lightly (just enough to combine yolk and white). Hold the cup in one hand, about 5 inches above the soup, while gently swirling the fork in WIDE circles in the soup with the other. Slowly pour a thin stream of egg into the soup, catching the egg with the fork (in the soup) and drawing it into wide circles in the soup. Interrupt the pouring several times so as to form several long, filmy threads. Season to taste. Add a generous squeeze of lemon. Serve immediately.
