ABC Soup

I grew up drinking and eating ABC soup. ABC soup is easy and simple to cook yet taste healthy and delicious!! I have no idea why this soup named as ABC.My guess it's because it's simple and easy as ABC and it's take no time to cook in short period.This ABC soup is kid friendly soup too.





Ingredients:
1 large bowl chopped rib tip ,about 2 pounds
3 liter water
2 carrot,peeled and cut 2 inch
1 large onion,peeled and cut quarter
1 inch ginger,scaled and sliced
4 nos potato,peeled and cut quarter,prefer Idaho potatoes.
sea salt to taste
1 tbsp whole white pepper,crushed or
1 tbsp white pepper powder*optional*
1 stalk cilantro,washed and chopped
Method:
1:Prepare medium stock pot with water at high heat.When water rolling boil,place rib tip into the water for 2 minutes to remove the fats and blood from the rib.Remove the rib tip from stock pot and let it run under cold water until clear.
2:Heat water in stock pot at high heat,add in rib tip,ginger,crushed whole pepper ,potatoes,carrot and onion,covered.When the stock and ingredients are rolling boiling reduce heat to medium high,covered.Let's the soup simmer at 30 minutes.
3:Add in salt and cook for another 5 minutes.Remove from heat and dish out.sprinkle with chopped cilantro before serve warm.

Dear Beachlover,

If I am not mistaken, the reason why it's called the ABC soup is because it stands for all the three vitamins from the vegetables.

Or put in Gammon joint and or Chicken instead of ribs, that way no need for stock

I also like to put in Celery and corianer or what the americans call Cilandro
