Recipes Tips:

When cooking with salted pork, be mindful of the amount of additional salt you add to your dish. Salted pork is already quite salty, so you may not need to add as much salt as you normally would.

If you don't have chicken stock on hand, you can use vegetable broth or water instead. The salt pork will add plenty of flavor to the soup.
