Ongrizinal ABC++ Soup

Being a ‘toothless tiger’ for the past few days, soft-foods are the only choice I have.  
Yet, having rice porridge for 3 consecutive days is too cruel even for a ‘toothless tiger”.

So, tonight I change my menu.  ABC soup it is !!!

First, painstakingly remove kernels from 3 cobs of sweet corn.
Put in a pot filled with 1/3 portion of water, bring to boil.
While waiting for the water to boil, cut 1 carrot , 2 onions, 3 tomatoes, 4 potatoes and some 100g of pork lion into pieces.  Add all the ingredients into the pot, add some black pepper powder too. 
Simmer for a long long time ( > 1 hour ) till all the ingredients softened, especially the pork.
( add in more water if the soup reduced too much ) 
While simmering, add in 4 eggs, allow to boil.  By the time the soup is done, the eggs are all thoroughly hard-boiled.  Take out the eggs, remove the eggshell, and put them back into the soup.
Add some salt to taste.  Serve hot., with or without rice. 

Normally, ABC soup consists only carrot, onions, tomatoes, potatoes and pork ribs.  This time, I add in sweet corn and eggs,  so it is actually an upgraded ABC soup.

I call it ABC++ soup.  
Another one-pot-meal enough for 4 person !!!
