we bought a pack of "instant" bakuteh spices/herbs from "hong kong grocery" shop in clayton for $2. it was from malaysia, but somehow, for some inexplicable reason, it stated to use beef or chicken. which is quite silly, really! of course we used pork.
we boiled it up with some whole garlic in a ricecooker pot since we didn't have a proper soup pot. also, cooking on a hot place isn't a walk in the park!
it tasted pretty good, with tofu, mushrooms and lettuce leaves.
