  • Check the meat if it is already cooked and taste the soup.  Adjust taste to your liking. 
  • Once pork is cooked and the soup is enough, you can now add the bell pepper and the malunggay leaves.  Simmer for just 30 seconds and it is done.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy! It is best paired with rice.
