    You don't specify how much beef broth you are suppossed to use, you dont show it on your ingrediant list. 10 cups? thats what i would assume since it says 1.25 cups per serving in the nutritional breakdown. - 11/5/09

    This is absolutely my favorite soup and have gone to Chinese restaurants to get just this soup. This recipe is awesome! I added 3 cloves of crushed garlic and some shrimp and it was perfect! My husband loved it. I'll be making this often. - 11/2/08

    This is one of my favorites at a Chinese restaurant. So glad to be able to make a lighter version at home. - 8/1/18

    I made this tonight-it was awesome! I had to change a few thing as in my little mid-western town we didn't have things like dried shiitake mushrooms, straw mushrooms. I did find canned varieties of these & used those (rinsed). The recipe doesn't specify how much broth - I used 8 cups of low sodium - 6/29/14

    This recipe has potential but if I make it again I will be tweaking it a bit, maybe adding more veggies.

    It was okay at first but when I went to eat it again it wasn't very good at all.
