Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 medium carrots sliced
  • 1/2 cabbage chopped
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 8 cups chicken stock*
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup water
  • green onion* garnish
  • wonton strips* garnish

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, add olive oil and ground pork. Cook pork on medium heat until brown. Stirring occasionally. Use a slotted spatula or spoon to transfer the pork to a separate small bowl, and set aside.

  2. Add onion and carrots to the leftover olive oil and juice in the pan, and stir to combine. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, and sauté for 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cabbage, stock, soy sauce, ground ginger and cooked pork, and stir to combine.

  3. Continue cooking until the soup reaches a simmer. Stir in pepper and water,  then reduce heat to medium-low,  cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the carrots and cabbage are nice and tender. Then taste and season the soup with a few generous pinches of salt as needed.

  4. Serve warm, garnished with green onions and wonton strips or other desired toppings. 

Recipe Notes

**I prefer to always use unsalted products and add in salt later. This is to avoid items being too salty. So I used unsalted chicken stock and low sodium soy sauce**

 

**The green onions and wonton strips are used as garnish and are optional, however, I TOTALLY think they make the dish, so don't think they're optional and get them!**

 

**I found the wonton strips by the salad dressings and toppings. **

 

**Feel free to use other meat as a substitute for the pork, and add in any veggies you would like! **

 

**It's best if you let the soup sit a few hours to let all the flavors come together.**
