Bah Kut Teh

with No Comments


It’s not an art to be able to make Bak Kut Teh at home. Infact, it’s one of the easiest dish to make if you’re in the mood for comfort foods. If the Chinese Pharmacy is just around the corner, then you are blessed to have the better herbal mix in town. If none exists near you, you can also find plenty of Herbal packages ready to buy in the supermarkets.

I don’t think it ever came to my mind, to ever want to make these Pork ribs Tea soup myself. The question instead was always, where do you get the best Bak Kut Teh in town! But when “home” is thousands of miles away, the only way to paradise is to walk there yourself. So, why not?! It’s easy, and it could be just as good as the ones you have tasted before. It’s also essential to know how much of the herbs should be used so as to avoid making it too bitter or tasting too much like medicine. I love my soups with lots of garlic, hence… take a look at the ingredients below. The soup tastes actually best on the third day after it was done.

 Warning: If you have never tried Bah kut teh before, you might find this dish very “herbal”, and for some from the western culture, a taste that resembles medicine. But it’s healthy and nourishing. Enjoy!
