Tasty Papaya Pork Rib Soup ( 木瓜排骨湯 )
300g Pork Soup Bone ( 汤骨 )
1 Papaya ( 木瓜 )
½ Sweet Corn ( 玉米 )
3 litres Water
2 tbsp Salt
1 tsp Sesame Oil (optional)
Dash of Pepper
Rinse pork bones and blanch them in Thermos inner pot to get rid of smell and any residue. Drain and add water to bring pork to boil. Lower fire, cover pot leaving a gap and simmer for about 15 minutes after that.
Clean corn and papaya, and cut them according to image shown. If cutting corn is too tough for you, ask the man of the house to do the job! I always find it too hard to cut the corn. Lol!
Add corn to soup, and continue to simmer for another 10 mins.
Transfer the inner pot to outer pot, and let it cook by itself for about 1 - 2 hours.
Add papaya just before serving and bring inner pot to boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes and you are ready to serve your Healthy Papaya Pork Rib Soup.
* If you do not have Thermos Shuttle Chef, follow the steps but add another 10 minutes each to your cooking. If time permits, you may like to boil your pork broth for a longer time for more flavour.
