Pork Ribs Misua with Patola

Pork Ribs Misua

It has been raining every afternoon the past few days. And when it’s rainy, it’s always nice to eat good soup that warms both the heart and the tummy. That’s where this Pork Ribs Misua with Patola comes in. Misua soup is a family favorite — minsan iniiba-iba namin ang sahog to keep it exciting. Sometimes, it’s plain Misua with Patola, Misua with Shrimp, Misua with Batchoy, and there’s Misua Bola-Bola without the Patola.


Pork Ribs Misua

Today, I added pork ribs so the soup gets to be more flavorful. It’s also fun to nibble on the meat that’s attached to the bone while you eat.
