stock, vinegar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, cayenne, sesame oil, and black
bean sauce in large saucepan. Bring to boil; check seasonings. Drain
shitakes and "tree ears". Remove stems of shitakes and slice thinly. Add
shitakes, "tree ears", pork mixture, tofu, bamboo shoots and baby corn to
stock. Bring to boil. Add cornstarch dissolved in water. Stir while it

Reduce heat to low; soup scorches easily. Serve garnished with chopped
green onions, and hot chili oil on the side for those who like it hotter.
