  • Pork
    • 5 oz minced pork
    • 1 tbsp minced shallot
    • 1 tsp bouillon
    • 1 tsp Red Boat fish sauce
    • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 lb garlic chives (standard or flowering)
  • 1 lb soft tofu (not silken tofu)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tbsp bouillon
  • Fish sauce (to taste)



  1. Mince shallot.
  2. In a bowl, combine the minced shallot and other ingredients in the Pork section and mix well. Let sit to marinate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  3. Cut off tough root ends of garlic chives and cut into 1-inch lengths.
  4. Strain tofu if needed and gently cut into slices, then bite-sized cubes.
  5. In a pot, heat vegetable oil on medium.
  6. Add the seasoned minced pork and sauté, breaking up the chunks into small crumbles.
  7. When most of the pork is no longer pink, add water and bring to boil on medium high.
  8. Skim any impurities that rise to the surface.
  9. Once the water is boiling, carefully add in the tofu.
  10. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes.
  11. Add chives, reduce heat to low, and use a ladle to press down on the chives so they all get submerged.
  12. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  13. Season to taste with bouillon powder and fish sauce, then remove from heat.
