Daikon Soup with Pork Recipe

The Daikon Soup with Pork Recipe offers a simple yet flavorful Cambodian dish made with beef or pork, daikon, and a handful of essential ingredients. Known for its ease of preparation and delicious taste, this soup is a popular addition to Cambodian cuisine. Daikon, a member of the radish family, is widely used in various Asian cuisines, and in this recipe, it takes center stage.

To begin, small-sized beef or pork bones are added to a pot of boiling water and cooked for 15 minutes. Any excess fat is removed from the surface of the broth. Following this, the daikon is introduced to the pot along with a paste made from pounded garlic and salt, and Knorr chicken soup base. The soup is allowed to simmer on low to medium heat until the daikon reaches a tender consistency.

The flavor of the Daikon Soup with Pork is fine-tuned to taste, ensuring it meets individual preferences. Once the soup achieves the desired flavor profile, the heat is turned off. To garnish, chopped green onions and saw leaves or cilantro are added, enhancing the visual appeal and providing a burst of fresh flavors.
