Chinese-style Pork Liver Soup Recipe

For best results, cook and serve this dish in a claypot though it is perfectly fine to cook this dish in a regular pot. You can add some mee suah to the soup for an easy one-dish meal.


  • 6 slices young ginger sliced thinly
  • 600 ml water
  • a small pinch of salt
  • 200 grams pig’s liver cut to thin, even slices
  • a few pieces lettuce
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce to taste
  • chopped spring onions for garnishing
  • dark soy sauce and sliced chilli padi


  1. Add ginger, water and a pinch of salt to claypot. When the soup starts to boil and bubble,add the liver pieces and lettuce.
  2. Turn off the stove. Cover claypot with lid and let it stand for 5 minutes. Do not overcook the liver – it should be pink when you bite into it. Test a piece of liver after 5 minutes and should it not be sufficiently cooked, bring to a boil for about 15 seconds, cover with lid and repeat this step.
  3. Season the soup to taste with light soy sauce. Garnish with spring onions and serve immediately with a side condiment of dark soy sauce and chilli.

Noob Cook Tip:
You can season the soup with sesame oil & Chinese wine as well, though my family kept this dish really deliciously simple with minimal ingredients.

  1. This brings back memory. When I was a child my mom used to cook this. I loved it with lots of ginger and pepper. I haven’t had this for a long long time.c

  2. Love this very much and it has been ages I didn’t have this. It really brings back the memory and I used to have this almost everyday during my 1 month confinement .

  3. It is not scary to me as I also grew up eating such dishes, either stir-fry pork liver with ginger or kidney-liver mee sua soup (something like your dish) :) …but I don’t think I have access to fresh pork liver over here other than fresh chicken liver.

    Some women do not like this dish unless “forced” to eat them during confinement. :p

  10. Hi,
    love your easy recipe. May I ask the liver need to have a special way to clean it before you cook? (Like the pig stomach in your recipe)
