1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 smoked boneless pork chops, cut into ¾” cubes
½ onion, cut into quarters and julienned
1 garlic clove, minced
½ cup green pepper, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped (remove seeds and ribs if you like less spice)
1 rib of celery, sliced on the diagonal
1” fresh ginger, grated
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
½ teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon worcestershire
1 green onion, sliced diagonally
6 large romaine lettuce leaves, stacked, rolled into a cigar shape, and cut into ¼” strips
1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
1 egg, lightly beaten

--4 cups of prepared, steamed jasmine rice


Heat a large skillet to medium-high, and add the olive oil and butter. Add the smoked pork and saute until lightly browned. Add the onions, garlic, green pepper, jalapeno, celery, ginger, pepper, and saute just until the onions are translucent. Deglaze by adding the chicken stock, while scraping the bottom of skillet. Add the rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, soil sauce, worcestershire; reducing to a simmer, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the green onion, romaine lettuce, and fresh parsley, and mix to combine. While stirring mixture in skillet in a continuous clockwise motion, slowly drizzle in the beaten egg to form ribbons. To serve, ladle green soup into bowls of steamed jasmine rice. – Enjoy!


Tip:  You can also use regular pork chops in this recipe, just remove the bone and slice the meat into strips, and brown to ensure pork is cooked through.

I have been making this since I was a small girl and this is the latest version, which has been kicked up a bit with minor modifications - delish!
