HOT AND SOUR PORK BROTH


This recipe is absolutely wonderful, full of fresh ingredients, spicy, hot, sour.......... right up my street, and, it's an absolute doddle to make, use up any leftover cooked pork belly you might have, trimming off any excess fat, or, shred cooked pork shoulder into it, great way of using up bits and pieces
