ABC Soup

As we are due to move back SG in 2 wks time, am trying to finish up all the ingredients in the kitchen/fridge. So I went surfing for recipe again & found this interesting soup recipe. However, I was not able to locate d reason why it’s named “ABC soup”. As stated in most blog/post, d main ingredients do not all start with the letters A, B and C, so most ppl also do not know why it’s called “ABC soup” too.

Anyway, it’s super easy enough for me to give it a try & end result – a very sweet tasting soup indeed!

Ingredients (Serves 2-3)

  • 400g pork ribs
  • 1.5 liters water
  • 2 small onions (cut to chunks)
  • 3 small carrots (peeled & cut to chunks)
  • 4 stalks celery (cut to chunks)
  • 1 sweet corn (cut to chunks)
  • 10 cherry tomato (optional if u prefer a little tangy taste)

1. Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for about 5 mins be4 rinsing with cold water. Remove & set aside.
2. Put all ingredients into a pot. Bring to boil be4 lowing d heat & simmer for another 2hrs.
