Pork and Tuyo Soup Recipe

One thing I hate about my two Labrador Retrievers are their immunity to cold weather.
Why? Because every time I turn my electric fan off during bed times, their hard panting keeps me awake. The father in me will turn on and will have the fan on for them. Despite I point the fan directly to them, the cold air will just bounce.
Making situations worst, I hate sleeping with shirt on. So, I will just rely on the blanket to keep me warm.
Anyway, last cold Sunday night (August 4), I decided have me and my sisters something to sip while watching Gandang Gabi Vice (Vice Ganda is hilarious). I cooked Pork and Tuyo Soup.
- 1/2 kilo ground pork
- 4 piece tuyo
- 2 pieces egg
- 3 cloves garlic – finely minced
- 1 medium onion – chopped
- 5 cups water
- 1/2 cup flour – diluted in a cup of water
- Salt and pepper to taste
Make Tuyo Flakes:
- Fry the tuyo and let it cool down.
- Separate the skin, innards, head and bones. Turn the flesh into flakes.
- Fry until crispy.
Make the Soup:
- Saute garlic and onions.
- Add the ground pork and simmer for a while.
- Add water, flour mixture and boil until it thickens.
- Add egg and quickly stir. Turn off the fire.
- Add tuyo and mix.
- Adjust with salt and pepper. Mix.
Based on my taste preferences, it’s ok as is. But, knowing the fact that my sisters’ taste buds prefer saltier taste than mine, I added a little salt.
