Here's my version of a childhood favourite. The sourness in the broth
is brought to you by the potent tamarind powder. Here's a new tagalog word
for you to learn: 'baboy' [bah-BOI] which means 'pork'.


3 lbs of pork neck bones and ribs
2 medium [or 1 large] sized onions: quartered
3 medium tomatoes
1 big bunch of green beans: tips cut
1 small bunch of left over cabbage
2 40g packages of knorr tamarind soup base
