First time to cook this, smoked spareribs soup kind of weird combination or fusion. Another creation direct from my kitchen. I just added carrot and zucchini just what on hand at home. Turned out good and we enjoyed the flavorful soup with my boiled broccoli and hubby ate with rice. Ribs was so tender and flavorful too.


800g Smoked Spareribs

1 Red Onion

some Pepper Corns

1 Carrot

1 Zucchini

Salt to adjust to taste

some water to boil the ribs

1 whole head Broccoli




The day (Monday, January 21, 2013) today had started too early for me. waaahhh…I got up 😦
Vienna time: 3:01 in the morning and I’m hungry 😦

My early morning breakfast 3:01 in the morning!

This what I got from the Kitchen:
Tuna in brine from can, sliced tomatoe and onion with siling labuyo seasoned with anchovy sauce (bagoong balayan), a cup of coffee with milk and I heated left over rice…Solve 😀
Mybe due to excitement for a very important appointment today the reason why I got up so early!


Came back home about 12 noontime, have to cook lunch for the kids. Just what I’ve found in my pantry today; mung bean, pork spareribs and I bought one pack of spinach from Merkur Market. That was it. Seasoned with one btoth cube and few drops of anchovy sauce. With tomatoe and onion. My 2 kids loves mongo specially with spinach, what ever meat or fish we add. Amazing, but true. hubby and I we started giving them spinach when they were young. There’s nothing miraculous about it, I don’t think. We started serving it to them very young, always made sure it was tastily prepared, and always enjoyed eating it with them. Just like Popeye the Sailorman was a great lover of spinach! 😀
They said that spinach has a high level of iron and excellent source of vitamin C. I love spinach too it doesn’t matter if it is cook with meat, fish, salad, in bread cases, with sour cream or even just blanch as side dish. I think kids can learn to love most vegetables, if they’re introduced early enough, prepared tastily enough, eaten often enough, and enjoyed by parents together with kids.



Spare ribs or spareribs are a variety of pork ribs, cooked and eaten in various cuisines around the world. They are the most inexpensive cut of pork ribs. They are a long cut from the lower portion of the pig, specifically the belly and breastbone, behind the shoulder, and include 11 to 13 long bones. There is a covering of meat on top of the bones as well as between them.
