Bitter bittergourd soup success

Few month back i was craving for bittergourd soup and got some tips from chinaman who told me some tips how to cook the bittergourd bitter...
Mr soot ker were sleeping when i just back from bought the ingredient...the fucker sleep thats why i took his picture...lol














i bought pork big bone for $1.90 and bittergourd for $1.50...cheap here everything in republic... ;)














open up the bittergourd to clear the seed...














the secret is the way cutting the bittergourd so it will preserve the bitter juice...do not cut it across...














cut it straight so the juice wont be cutted away...














the fucker wake up then told me that the bone must be soak in hot water to flushed off the blood in the bone...first time i heard dont it this way as i think it will lessen the pork oil in it...














back to the bittergourd...














then we cut it into shorter length...














it depends on how short or long you wana cut it... ;)














dump it all inside including the big bone... :)














set the slow cooker to high so that it can be ready in few hours to eat...














after that i went jb to catch up movie while mr soot ker says he too tired and he help me to add salt to the soup...when i reach home at nite the yummy soup ready to be eaten and whole house says that it very bitter...lol
