On my quest to get more ribbons I pulled this from my early cooking days and revisited it today, it is just as good now as it was when I first started making it.

  1. Add all ingredients (except the corn starch and 1/2 cup water that is for thickening later)into a large stock pot.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer over medium heat for 40 minutes WITHOUT STIRRING OR OPENING, just shake the pan once or twice during cooking.
