Soups this hearty and delicious don't grow on trees. And it's a good thing they don't! Those branches aren't stable enough. Surely the bowl, like the baby in the cradle rock-a-bye-ing, will fall. Then it's in a thousand pieces, and the soup will get absorbed into the dirt. No one wants that. What were talking about, again? Ah yes, this soup. It's hearty and delicious. Tip: To keep corn kernels from making a mess, hold the ear of corn vertically in a bowl. Cut downward, rotating corn as you go, so kernels end up in the bowl instead of scattered on your counter.

    Cook the Pork

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add ground pork to hot pot and cook undisturbed until starting to brown, 3-4 minutes. Stir in seasoning blend, onion salt, and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally, breaking up into small pieces, until no pink remains, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.
