ABC soup


  • 500 grams pork ribs
  • 1.3 litres water
  • 2 medium russet potatoes peeled and cut to chunks
  • 1 large white/yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 1 large carrot peeled and cut to chunks
  • 2 stalks celery sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp “ikan bilis” optional; for convenience, place inside disposable soup pouch
  • 2 slices ginger optional
  • 4 cloves old garlic cloves optional; don’t peel or mash them
  • 1 tomato sliced to 6 wedges; use one more tomato if prefer a more tangy taste
  • salt to taste


  1. Blanch pork ribs in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water and set aside.
  2. Add blanched pork ribs and all the ingredients except the last two (tomato and salt) into a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for another 40-50 minutes. Season to taste with salt. For best results, keep warm in thermal pot for at least 2 hours before serving.
