Chinese Pork Bone Soup ( Gar Dook Mu On Tom Made Bur )


The Chinese people sell ready made seasonings for this soup, 4 dried herbs ready prepared to make a soup stock. In Thai we adopted this dish and added some chilli (well don't we always!).

4 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
