A simpler variation of ABC soup, this sweet corn and pork ribs soup is equally nutritious and comforting.
It’s also easy to cook with a pressure cooker or instant pot.
While it is similar to ABC soup, there is a slight difference in taste.
Healthy sweet corn pork ribs soup
Unlike the ABC soup which tends to have a tinge of sourness from tomatoes, this soup does not have that. It also does not contain potatoes.
As a result, the superb sweetness of the corn comes to the fore – giving this dish its distinct sweetness. Hence, it is imperative to only use the freshest sweet corn for the best results!
Pork ribs is the other essential ingredient. The meat, bones and marrow not only provide nutrients (such as thiamine and iron), they are a natural flavour enhancer!
While not necessary, we also like to add chicken to our soup for extra protein and nutrients.
This soup takes 15 mins to prepare and about 30 mins to pressure cook.
