DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the Adzuki beans until they are slightly soft.
  • Drain the water and rinse the beans, place them back in a large pot.
  • Chop up the carrots, celery, and onions, and place them in the pot with the beans.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (spices, pork, water), except the sherry.
  • Mix the ingredients.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and cook just under a boil for 2 to 3 hours (until beans are very soft, soup is thick and vegetables have thoroughly cooked).
  • Before serving, add the sherry and stir.
  • I like a particularly thick,"stew like" soup.
  • If you want a thinner soup, just add more water!
  • Also, I tend to add my spices liberally- just season to taste!
  • The pork is mainly to give flavour, so get something with a little fat on it!
  • Note: Adzuki beans are Japanese beans.
  • You can substitute with other beans, but the cooking time may vary.
