Baikut Sayur Asin ( Pork ribs w/ sour mustard soup )

When i was younger this was my favourite meal , it’s some kind of soup . I remember usually after school , coming home and i asked her , what’s for lunch , and when she told me it’s ” baikut sayur asin ” i was so happy , it’s my favourite meal !! Eventually after i got married , for a while i was having problems finding the vegetables that goes in this soup . It’s sour mustard , i think it’s like pickled mustard ( not too sure about this part ) , but you cannot use mustard only . It has to be sour mustard , mustard leaves that has very strong sour taste .I remember my mom used to tell me that i have to wash the sour mustard couple times , or else my soup would be way too sour .

This is how sour mustard looks like

Anyway , you need :

3 lbs of pork ribs

2 packages of sour mustard , wash couple of times , wring it good before chopping them

about 6-8 cloves of garlic , minced

water , enough to submerge it

salt , pepper and pinch of sugar

Cook them all together , bring to boil , then cook on low for 1 to 1.5 hours or until the meat is very tender .
