this is a wonderful soup when you have a stomach bug or when you are just generally sick. Thai's use this to aid them in curing the flu.



  •   2 c
    chicken stock, light
  •   1/4 c
    ground pork
  •   1/2 c
    cooked rice
  •   1 Tbsp
    fish sauce
  •   2
    small eggs
    the next ingredients are optional
    sliced ginger
    minced cilantro
    sliced green onion or scallions
    chili sauce or flakes, your choice.

How To Make

  • 1
    In a saucepan, bring the stock to a boil and add the ground pork, stirring to break it up. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in the cooked rice. Simmer for 2 minutes. Season with the fish sauce.
  • 2
    When you're ready to serve the soup break a whole egg into each individual bowl. Bring the soup to a rolling boil and ladle over the egg. Garnish with the optional ingredients.
  • 3
    Cover with lids or plates and let sit for a few minutes to let the eggs poach, then serve.

    This soup is pretty versatile, you can add already cooked meats and other veggies to it and make it your own.
