Pork and Watercress Soup

Shirley Makekau Recipe

By Shirley Makekau tutuwoman

I make this soup when I make a meal of egg foo young, lup chong(chinese sausage and rice.
I make it with watercress as that is my husbands favorite but if not in the store then I use bok choy which is MY favorite veggie for the soup. You can make a big pot of this soup or small.. I make a smaller pot since its just the two of us now.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put water in a pot and add the fresh smashed ginger and chicken bouillon. Cut the pork cutlet into small portions and add to the pot and then add salt.
Let this boil to cook the pork . Remove the scum from the pork off the top until there is a clear broth.
2
Wash the watercress or bok choy cabbage well and then slice which ever one you decide to use for the soup.
Taste the broth to see if it needs more seasoning ( bouillon or salt). If the seasoning is ok then add the veggie of choice and cook in the broth for around 5 minutes ,, more or less. Add egg into the soup and cook a little while till egg is cooked. ( you can omit the egg if you like but we like it in the soup)
