This is a recipe that I got from my mum. I used to love it when my mum makes this soup before I had to cook for myself. It is a very comforting soup that will soothe your worries.
500g of pork (ribs or tenderloin)
4 large potatoes (cut into bite size pieces)
2 tablespoons of ground brown bean sauce/paste
5 cloves of garlic (peeled and smashed)
3 pieces of 1 cm ginger pieces
Dash of soy sauce
In a pot, add some oil. Let the oil heat up a little bit then add garlic and ginger.
After awhile, add into pork pieces and let the pork cook. Add a dash of soy sauce and the brown bean sauce. Mix well.
Add potato pieces and mix together until coated with sauce. Let mixture cook for 2-3 minutes.
Now, you can either take off the stove, let it cool down and refrigerate to cook at a later time, or add about 4 cups of water and let it boil.
Cook until potatoes are soft and pork is tender.
The soup is a salty delicious concoction; great to eat with some warm white rice. I like to use pieces of pork with more flesh so it becomes an additional dish instead of just soup. I also like cooking the soup until the potatoes are soft and fluffy.
Do try it one day. 🙂
