Stuffed Pork Bitter Melon Soup

This is my new favorite way of making stuffed bitter melon soup. I took a shortcut in preparing this soup and the outcome was extremely delicious with half the time to cookI used my instant pot, but you can cook this over the stove as well for a little longer time.


The short cut I did was purchase sweet Italian pork sausage from Sprouts instead of ground turkey and seasoning it with minced garlic, mushrooms, onions, etc.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2-3 people



  1. Prep and devein shrimp then cut in half.
  2. Prep bitter melon and cut bitter melon into 3 even sections.
  3. Using a spoon scoop out the inside.
  4. Stuff the bitter melon with sweet Italian pork sausage.
  5. Pour water into instant pot and select the soup setting (12 minutes).
  6. Allow water to heat up and then add the bitter melon.
  7. Using spoon, scoop meatballs pieces of the sausage into the instant pot.
  8. Add shrimp in. Then salt and fish sauce.
  9. After 12 minutes is up, allow instant pot to cool. Add in sliced mushrooms, diced green onions and cover for a few more minutes. Ready to serve with dash of black pepper on top.
