Simple & Delicious - - ON THE MENU -

My hus­band grew up in a tra­di­tional Asian house­hold and gives this soup high marks for au­then­tic taste. If you aren’t into Sriracha, any type of hot sauce would give it a de­li­cious kick! —Kari Sue, Bend, OR

TEST KITCHEN TIPS

• Ad­ding the edamame to­ward the end of cook­ing keeps the color brighter.

• Cook­ing the pork in batches will help keep the pan from be­ing too crowded. Over­crowd­ing cre­ates steam, which pre­vents the meat from brown­ing.

HEALTH TIP If this soup is too rich for your diet, use pork shoul­der in­stead of pork ribs. It’s leaner but will still cook up ten­der and fla­vor­ful.
