    This soup makes a showy presentation.  At the table
   you slide fried rice cakes into the soup to create a
   crackling, sizzling sound.  Actually, you can add the
   rice cakes to almost any soup and give the soup a
   sizzling name.  The trick is to be sure that both rice
   cakes and soup are piping hot.
    In a bowl, blend soy, sherry and cornstarch.  Add
   prok and mix until well coated.  Let stand for ten
   minutes.  In a 2-quart pan, heat chicken broth to
   boiling.  Add pork, stir several times, then reduce
   heat and simmer for five minutes.  Add mushrooms,
   water chestnuts, and peas. Simmer, uncovered, for 2
   minutes.  Add green onion, salt to taste and sesame
   oil.
    Keep soup hot while you fry sizzling rice cakes per
   recipe.  Pour hot soup into a warm tureen and carry to
   the table.  Bring hot fried rice cakes to the table in
   a bowl and immediately slide into the soup.
