1. combine the onion brule', white mire poix, meat, tomato, and egg whites and mix well.

2. add chicken stock and mix well.

3. Bring to a slow simmer, stir until a "raft" forms on top.

4. add the sachet and simmer gently for 1½ hours, when it is done the raft will begin to sink a little and that means it is finished.

If at any time you break the raft due to rough boiling or stiring it is ruined, please be careful.
