This was very nice and so easy to make. I didn't add tofu( personal choice) added some mushroom to bulk it up, and a little grated carrot, for color, I too, added pepper to the meat. Very healthy and filling . Thanks for posting.

This was a very yummy and pretty soup! I really liked the contrast of textures; crunchy vegetable, silky tofu, and meaty pork balls. I used home made stock, so the flavor was very good to start with, but adding the fish sauce gave it a nice, salty/sour bite. At first, I though seven ounces of pork wouldn't be enough, but I was happily surprised to find that each bowl had plenty of meatballs as well as tofu. I have a couple of suggestions that might make a good soup even better. First, add a bit of pepper to the pork mixture- it needs a bit more seasoning. Second, press the tofu well to get most of the water out before adding to the soup. Third, add some fresh ginger and/or lemongrass to the simmering broth to intensify the Thai flavors. Overall, a very good dish that I will make again. Thanks for posting!
