“Man Flu” Soup

IMG_6303 (Small)

So gracias to a co-worker of mine I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather.  Yes, that means man flu.  The number one symptom of man flu is whining and thinking your going to die, when it’s really just a puny little cold.  Guilty as charged.  Nothing makes you feel a bit better when your a bit down than some nice spicy soup (winning the lottery aside).  I made a couple of pots of this the past few days and I’m starting to feel right as rain.  It really should be called “I threw whatever I had in my fridge soup”, but I thought this title was more fitting.  Anyway, here it goes.

Man Flu Soup

1 Cup Green Cabbage, shredded

2 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 Inch Fresh Ginger, minced

1/2 Serrano Pepper. minced

1 Medium Onion, sliced

1/2 Cubanelle Pepper, sliced

1 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock

1 1/2 Cups Water

2 Tsp Soy Sauce

1 Tsp Siracha

1 Tsp White Vinegar (or Rice Vinegar)

1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

1 Cup Shredded Pork (cooked)

Garnish with Sliced Green Onions

In a medium saucepan, heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil over medium heat, sautee garlic, ginger, and hot pepper for 1 minute.  Add onions and peppers, cook for 2 minutes, add cabbage, cook 2 more minutes.  Add stock, water, soy, siracha, and vinegar, simmer for  7-8 minutes.  Add pork, simmer for about 4 minutes, taste, top with green onions and serve.  The whining should reduce soon after consumption.  This will yield 3-4 bowls of soup.  Cheers.
