Traditional Style Pork Soup [Bak Ngee Th'ng]

An all time favourite soup - pork pottage [rou geng] for the dinner table which is not difficult to prepare with only 2 main ingredients [pork and vegetables].  It can be prepared ahead of dinner time.  Apart from pork, fish fillets can also be used.
[serves 2-3]
150 gm pork meat [muscle meat] - cut thin slices,  marinate with:
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/4 tsp each of salt, msg and pepper
1 tsp sesame oil
4 tbsp sweet potato flour [can use tapioca flour and wheat starch 50:50]
100 gm cabbage - washed and cut shreds
750 ml water
some chopped spring onions
Seasoning For Soup
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp each of salt
1/4 tsp pepper and msg
1 tsp sesame oil
  1. Season meat slices with marinade for at least 20 minutes.  Toss marinated pork slices in flour.  Tip off excess flour and place on a plate.  Leave for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Bring water to boil in a soup pot.  Drop in pork slices and let it cook for about 5 minutes [need not stir].  The pork slices will float to the top when cooked.  Use a serrated ladle to dish out pork slices and spread on a plate.  Leave to cool in a fridge [this will make the pork slices very chewy].
  3. Add seasoning and adjust to taste.  Put in the cabbage to cook until soft.
  4. Return the pork slices to soup.  Stir and serve garnish with spring onions.
