Salt Meat Watercress Soup


One of the best comforting soups for cold weather, the morning after or if you are feeling a bit under the weather.  A favorite dish you will commonly find at local Hawaiian Food Restaurants. Feel free to add as little or as much salt as your diet will allow.  We enjoy having fresh watercress served as a ganish on the completed soup. Soo ono!
