ABC Soup

Why the name? I’ve been wondering for a long time. The main ingredients don’t have the initials of ABC. So why ABC? Probably because it’s so easy to cook, that it’s as simple as A-B-C.


  • Pork Ribs
  • Potatoes
  • Carrot
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery (Optional)
  • Onion
  • Ginger, Garlic, Salt


PREPARE (1-3 hours before)

  • Thaw the pork ribs in the fridge section overnight or in the morning. If time-pressed, thaw at room temperature for at least 2- 3 hours before cooking. 
  • 2 to 3 Potatoes, peeled and cut to chunks
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and cut to chunks
  • 1 Tomatoes, sliced to 6-8 wedges
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced thinly (Optional)
  • 1 yellow/red onion, 1 slice of ginger, 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped,  add more if you like
  • Set aside some salt and boil water


  • Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for about 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water, set aside.
  • Place the blanched pork ribs and the other ingredients (except salt) into a pot. Pour water in to cover the ingredients with it. 
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer over low fire for another 40-50 mins. 
  • Season to taste with salt.
