More Tonkotsu Broth

Second of three bags of pork bones. Same same, parboil, rinse, clean water, ginger, whiskey, vinegar, simmer for hours.

The Cat’s Bowl of Soup

The spicy bamboo shoot really gives the soup an added flavor. The Cat slurped.

Pulled out a couple of pieces of rib meat from the bag of bones. Steamed with vodka and shoyu.

The Mouse cooked a third of the pork bones he picked up from the warehouse on Friday. Just parboiled, washed, clean pot, fresh water, apple cider vinegar, and vodka (less than a jigger each).

Usually, The Cat likes to “clean” the bones in the soup, this time the bones and residual meat were too gnarly (The Mouse’s opinion), The Mouse took out most of the bones and meat (he left a few rib pieces that weren’t “gnarly”.

For The Cat’s soup, The Mouse added dried bamboo, canned bamboo, carrot, celery, and sea salt.

This week’s soup bones.

Pork Bones

Not sure which bones these are, not leg bones, not ribs, possibly neck. Not too much marrow. Cooked a shorter time than the feet, took out the bones and shredded the meat.

Soup Meat

The Mouse not decided what to do with the meat yet.

Bitter Melon

Farmers market. May go into the shredded pork meat soup, maybe not. Dunno.

Potato and Butterfish

Leftover banchan from The Mouse’s lunch, small piece of miso butterfish from the grocery store. Super easy, toaster oven 10 to 12 minutes.

Enjoy. Eat well.
