Most of the recipes I am sharing here these days are getting simpler and easier.  The main reason being I am really occupied with many activities  and commitments but still prefer home-cooked food then eating out.

This is an easy, simple and homey type of soup.  I believe even a novice cook can prepare this soup because it is really easy.  You can boil it in a soup pot or even in a slow cooker.
Just a few basic steps and you can get to enjoy a fragrant, savoury,  tasty and boiling hot soup in the comfort of your home.
Recipe adapted from My White Kitchen with modifications
[serves 3]
300 gm meaty pork ribs – washed, blanched and rinsed
1 small bulb Szechuan vegetable [Cai Chye] – sliced and rinsed several times [not necessary to soak]
2 tomatoes – cut wedges
800 ml water or add more if preferred
Salt and msg to taste

  1. Prepare the above ingredients as stated. 
  2. Bring water to boil in a soup pot.  Add in blanched pork ribs and boil for about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Add in Szechuan vegetables and tomato wedges.  Bring to boil again, then lower heat, cover and simmer for another 30 minutes or until pork ribs are tender.  Add a little more water if soup has dried up a little.  
  4. Add seasoning to taste.  Dish up to serve hot.
