Stuffed Cucumber Soup Recipe

Ingredients:
1/2 lb ground pork (or veal)
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
1 tablespoon Thai Fish Sauce* (Nam Pla)
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro or 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro (also -called Chinese parsley)
8 ea green onions, white part and 2″ of green tops
1 can of boiled quail eggs*, drained and rinsed with fresh tap water
4 ea cucumbers (about 8″ long)
2 qt chicken stock

*Available in Asian markets

Instructions:

Select cucumbers which are 7 to 8 inches long, but as small around as you can get. Peel the cucumbers and then slice each across into four equal pieces. Using a small spoon scoop out the seeds being careful to leave a “bottom” in each piece.

Preparing the meat stuffing:

Combine the ground pork, garlic, ginger, cilantro, 4 of the green onions, and fish sauce. Make a small ball of the mixture and microwave for about a minute to cook thoroughly. Taste for seasoning, and correct if needed.

Using your fingers stuff the meat mixture into the cucumbers (stick a toothpick through the side of the cucumber and into the meat to hold it in place while it cooks) in the hot chicken stock.

Cook about 15 minutes and add the 4 remaining green onions cut in 2″ lengths, and the canned quail eggs.

Cook another 5 minutes and serve immediately.

Note: If you can manage to keep the soup just barely below the boil your finished soup will be very clear.
