The fresh mushrooms add a sweetness to the chicken-based stock, while the cilantro leaves lend an overall fragrance to the soup. Even so, to make the soup truly delicious, the pork slices must be tender and not overcooked. An even simpler way to make this soup is to use shredded ham. Obviously, with ham there is no need to marinate the meat. If you want to make a more substantial soup, you could add a handful of Chinese noodles or small Italian pasta shapes.
