Traditionally, Chinese love to serve soup in small portion (a little bit over a cup size) in every meal as an appetizer.  My mom used to do that, except certain soup recipes, such as tomato carrot potato soup, she will make sure that we each had a big bowl.  (You will find out the story behind it on that recipe page.)

Anyway, when inspiration strikes, I decided to combine the traditional Chinese and my mom’s ways together to serve it as a dinner.  That was how this soup recipe came along.  So, it is a one-pot low carb meal.

CHEF NOTES

For die-hard low carb diet, skip frozen green peas entirely.  Although corn starch has high carbs, it is a must to give this soup the right texture.  Unless, you are ok with a watery egg-drop soup.

It only needs 1/2 tsp white pepper in this soup.  However, this seasoning gives a nice touch of the traditional Chinese flavor.

Ingredients
1-1.5 lbs Ground Beef

8oz Frozen Green Peas
2 tsp Light Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp White Pepper

  1. While transferring ground beef into the soup pot, use your hand to break them up.
