  • 450 Grams Thinly Sliced Pork
  • 4 Medium Roma Tomatoes Quartered
  • 2 Carrots Peeled And Medium Sliced
  • 4 Potatoes Peeled And Quartered
  • 6 Cups Water
  • 1 Tsp Oil
  • 1 Tsp Salt


  • Soak the sliced pork in cold water for 15minutes, then drain.
  • Put 6 cups of water into a pot to boil.
  • Peel and cut the carrots and potatoes and quarter the tomatoes.
  • Heat oil in a pan until medium hot, add tomatoes, carrots, and potatoes separately, sautéing each ingredient for 1 minute before adding the next.
  • Transfer the vegetables into the pot of water, and bring to a boil.

1. Soaking the pork slices in cold water results in a clearer soup. Also, skim off any scum that appears when the soup is boiling.
2. The tomato skin becomes detached in the boiling process and can be easily removed with chopsticks.
3. Sautéing the vegetables until fragrant before adding them to the water makes a richer tasting soup.
