West Lake beef soup is a hearty ground beef soup with shiitake and tofu. The soup is soothing, flavorful, healthy, and easy to make!
Let’s get started!
Add the beef to a pot of boiling water. Parboil for 2 minutes. Drain into a colander and rinse under water for 1 minute.
Saute the ginger, add the tofu, beef, and stock. Gentle boil over medium heat for 10-12 minutes. Then season and thicken it.
With the soup at a simmer, slowly drizzle in eggs from high above. Garnish with sesame oil and cilantro (or scallions) and serve.
