1 pound ground pork
5 slices fresh ginger, peeled, sliced, asashed, and then minced
2 Tablespoons thin soy sauce
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons Chinese brandy or rice wine
1 scallion, minced
1 egg, beaten
1 heaping Tablespoon cornstarch
5 dried Chinese black mushrooms, soaked for half an hour, stems discarded, then slivered
½ pound Chinese cabbage, slivered
½ pound bamboo shoots, shredded
½ pound winter melon, peeled and shredded or cubed
½ pound melting mouth peas, stingy edges removed and discarded, then slivered
1 pound doufu, cut into half-inch squares (optional)
4 ounces canned abalone, sliced thin, then cut into thin strips
1. Mix ground pork, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, brandy or wine, scallion pieces, egg, and the cornstarch and make into small balls, and refrigerate covered overnight.
2. Mix mushrooms, cabbage, bamboo shoots, and peas.
3. Add meatballs and the vegetables and the winter melon with three quarts of boiling water, after it boils, add the abalone and turn the heat to the simmer, then add the doufu if using it, and the abalone and simmer for three minutes, then serve every person a heaping ladle of the meat, fish, and vegetable mixture, and let them serve themselves as much liquid as they wish.
NOTE: Instead of the abalone, one can substitute half pound of cooked and deveined shrimp or half pound diced cooked crab, each shrimp and piece of crab cut into half-inch pieces, and/or half pound any white fish, and this should be diced into half-inch cubes. Add these in place of the abalone; a friend says any of these can be added with the abalone sliced and then cubed in half-inch squares.
