Pepper-y soup for flu-y days

When I’m feeling sick (like today) all I want is something to warm me up inside-out. The spicy warmth of pepper always does that for me, making bak kut teh one of my favourite ‘sick person’ foods. Fatty pork ribs in a peppery herb soup, dipped in sweet black sauce, with salty vegetables on the side… Even when my nose is behaving like a broken tap and my throat feels like sandpaper, I can still taste it ;) I get my appetite back too, even if it’s just for a while!
