upo misua soup

i have an upo remaining in the kitchen for almost a week now and some part of it was starting to get spoiled. so, instead of throwing it into waste and since i found some misua in the pantry i'll make a soup for our lunch. i was glad that it's a sure hit to the father-and-son.

it's easy to prepare and at the same time budget-saving as well. i was not able to measure the ingredients but you can always experiment as to your preferences. this serves 3-4 persons.

upo, peeled, halved and sliced
pork, cut into small pieces
garlic, crushed and sliced
onion, sliced
ginger, sliced
tomato, sliced
pork cube dissolved in water
cooking oil
spring onion, green part only, sliced

in a wok saute onion, garlic and ginger until fragrant.

add pork slices and fry until brown.

add the tomatoes and upo. saute for 1 minute.

add the pork cube dissolved in water. cover and let boil.

add the misua and add more water if needed.

season with salt and pepper.

serve hot with green onion leaves for topping.
