During the hot scorching weather, I started looking through recipe books for recipes that are delicious and easy to cook, best without sweating out in the kitchen. I found this recipe which is simple and only requires steaming. In the original recipe, the pork ribs are steamed together with rice in individual serving bowls.[EZ Nutritious Watercress Soup].
I complained about the hot weather and my hubby daren't complain about the meal, just a meat dish, soup and rice. Hope, this isn't too simple a meal for the family.
