Here is my newest soup recipe. The ingredients and preparation are really simple, and the result is delicious, healthy and filling.
1/2 lb pork loin
1 yellow onion (whole) + 1/2 onion (sliced)
1 celery stick
1 tbsp salt
1/2 box spaghetti, broken in half*
2 c baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp soy sauce
*Egg noodles will work too.
Place the pork in a soup pot and fill with just enough water to cover the meat. Bring to boil and spill water out. Replace with new water (about 5 cups) and add the whole onion, carrot, celery and salt to pot. Bring to boil again, then turn heat down and simmer for 40 minutes with a cracked lid.
Discard the onion, carrot and celery, and remove meat from pot. When cool enough to handle, shred the pork by hand or with fork. Set aside.
While the broth is boiling, add the pasta, stir and cook until al dente, about 6 min. Then add soy sauce, sliced onion, pork and spinach. Stir and cook until spinach is wilted, about 1 min. Re-season if necessary.
