Corn and Spinach (Suam/Swam) Soup


  • 1 lb ground Beef or Pork
  • 1 large Onion, chopped
  • 4 Garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 inch-Ginger root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce, or to taste
  • 6 cups Beef broth or Water
  • 1 cup (or 1 small can) cream style-Corn
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (unthawed)
  • 1 (10 oz) pack Spinach
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place the ground pork or beef in a large pan. If your beef is extra-lean heat a little oil first. Stir to cook until the meat changes its color and starts releasing its fat.
  2. Add the garlic, onion and ginger. Cook until the onions are soft. Season with a little pepper and fish sauce.
  3. Add the broth or water. Bring to a boil and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Add the corn and cook for another 5 minutes. Stir the spinach and cook just until wilted. Correct the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed. 
  4. Ladle into bowls and serve hot. You can have the soup on its own but in our house we have it with rice naturally.
