Abalone and Pork Soup with Friends

SERVE: 4 | PREP TIME: 45 minutes

A festive season favourite, that we think should be enjoyed year-round, because there’s nothing like getting people together over a delicious, warming bowl of soup.


  • 4 pork fillets (300g)
  • Three Friends abalone (1 can)
  • 3 dried Chinese mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • Vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon corn-starch
  • ½ tablespoon black pepper
  • 3 thin slices fresh ginger
  • 6 cups boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 celery ribs
  • 1 chopped spring onion


  • Thinly slice the pork and marinate in the soy sauce, sugar, corn-starch, half a tablespoon of oil, and some black pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and stir in the ginger with a pinch of salt for about a minute. Pour in 6 cups of boiling water.
  • Soak the mushrooms in a bowl of warm water for about 15 minutes. Slice the mushrooms and celery into thin strips.
  • Add mushrooms, celery and marinated pork into the pan, pop the lid on and simmer for about 8 minutes.
  • Cut the abalone into slices and put them into the pan about 4 minutes before serving.
  • Sprinkle the spring onions over the top and serve immediately.
