This video will show you how to cook pork bola bola soup with misua and patola. It is a type of tasty meatball soup with sliced loofah and thin Chinese vermicelli or flour noodles.

Here is the recipe:

1 lb. ground pork
1 Knorr Pork cube
3 ounces misua
1 medium patola, sliced
2 medium yellow onion, minced
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ cup chopped scallion
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons patis (fish sauce)
6 to 8 cups water
3 tablespoons cooking oil

Prepare the meatballs by combining all meatball ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture and form into a ball. Perform this step until the mixture is completely consumed. Set aside.
Heat oil in a cooking pot. Once the oil becomes hot, pan fry the meatballs until the outer part turns light brown. Note: the meatballs do not need to be cooked completely at this point.
Remove the meatballs from the pot. Set aside.
Using the remaining oil, saute garlic until golden brown. Add onion. Continue to cook until the onion softens.
Pour water. Let boil. Add the pan-fried meatballs back.
Add Knorr Pork Cube. Stir. Cover the pot and cook in medium heat for 15 minutes.
Add misua and patola. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Season with patis and ground black pepper. Stir.
Add scallions. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve. Share and enjoy!
