Notes

Cooking tips for tomato & potato pork soup: 

  • Some people like to boil the bones to get rid of fat and blood. I normally just use hot water to wash the bones because it is easier and faster. Then, I use a strainer to remove fat when the soup is done. 
  • If you use a top stove boiling method, add 2 more cups of water (total 8 cups) after the water is boiling and turn fire to medium low simmering for 90 minutes. 
  • Remember to add salt to your taste.
