Soupy Rice with Pork Belly
Ambassador Elsie Yan, is delivering a great bowl of health and warmth this evening. Enjoy this soup featuring our Miracle Rice! It pairs perfectly with the rich pork belly and flavors from tamarind and ginger!
"This is such a comfort food for me - soupy rice! It's basically a soup where we add some cooked rice into it before eating. The soup is tangy, savory, sweet and peppery. It's so tasty and appetizing that there would not be a drop left in the bowl. I used pork belly, but you can use pork ribs, chicken or duck meat. You can also use roast pork whereby the soup will be even more fragrant. It helps to use some pork bones to sweeten the soup, or you can use chicken stock too. This is a healthy low-carb version using Miracle Rice from Miracle Noodle." --- Elsie Yan AKA @lowcarbrecipeideas on Instagram
