My mom cleaned and made ready for me this pig maw/stomach.

My mom's easy method :-
1. Trim off any fat on the stomach lining.
2. Make a cut and invert the stomach, use a spoon or a butter knife to scrape as much slimy impurities as possible. Wash it thoroughly and rinsed.
3. Blanch the pig maw in hot water for few minutes. Remove and drained.
4. Cut into moderate size (not too small).
5. Bring water to boil and add some whole white pepper and salt, add in pig maw pieces, boil for 10mins, and reduce to low heat and simmer until pig maw become tender but not too soft.
6. Discard the water, and it is ready to cook or keep inside the freezer if not use it immediately.


a must have ingredient- whole white peppercorns..I use the good peppers from Sarawak given by my friend who staying in Kuching..


Also you need a good pot of chicken stock.

Just to say I am here at this post. I can't say much for this type of soup because I don't eat pig's maw. But some people really loves this soup.

Hi Sonia! This is my No. 1 soup of all times... Since I was a boy... the more peppery it is, the better!

Yes, you should take a well-deserved break. Thank you for organising the CNY event. I could see the response was so very overwhelming!

But don't be away for too long... We will all miss you and your posts. :P
