Sweet Corn And Pork Soup (Slow-Cooker)


We're going through a heat wave. Water rationing has started in several places. The haze is also back.

In the news! Haze hits KL, Selangor as heatwave continues to grip Malaysia: As Malaysia continues to be in the grip of the hottest weather it has ever experienced, parts of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur have now been hit by the haze.

Things are looking pretty gloomy down here but as they say, 'life goes on!' ; it's better to stay focused on drinking more water and at the same time do our best not to waste any, than on moping around.

In this household at least, there is always soup to look forward to. It's one way of staying hydrated and to me, it's pick-me-up food. You don't need a whole lot of ingredients to make a delicious pot of clear soup. Sweet corn, red dates and onions is my favourite way of going about it along with either chicken or pork. With a slow-cooker, this is an effortless meal. 

Sweet Corn And Pork Soup (Slow-Cooker)

I add a dash of soy and sliced chilli onto the meat, spoon it up with rice and be like, "Gosh, this is soooo satisfying.."

Sweet Corn and Pork Soup
Ingredients:
- 380g pork ribs
- 1 sweet corn (slice into 4)
- 1 yellow onion (cut into large slices)
- 10 dried red dates (make a small cut in the middle)
- 1.4L water
- 1/8 tsp salt as a start, and then to taste
- Ground white pepper
- Spring onion to garnish (chopped)

How-to:
1) Place all the ingredients into the slow-cooker. Add water. Season with some salt and pepper.
2) Cook on high for 5 hours. Taste (the soup should be sweetish at this point). Season with more salt (optional) to get a savory flavour.
3) Serve garnished with spring onions.


Place all the ingredients into the slow-cooker.
Add water, season and voila!

 Best eaten on its own or with plain white rice.
