Soup Stock Pouch

Disposable Soup Stock Pouch

These disposable soup stock pouches are quite handy to have in the kitchen, especially for making soups and stews. If there are small pieces of ingredients which you used in the cooking for flavour but you do not wish to have them in the final dish, you can place these ingredients in a soup bag. After cooking, you can discard the entire bag. It saves me a bit of time.

I bought the packet (as shown in the photo) at Daiso Singapore (for S$2), but you can also get them at provision shops.

To use, place ingredients in a stock stock bag, secure by turning the top flap inside out to prevent spillage. After cooking, discard the entire bag.

    They’re great, aren’t they? We put ikan bilis in them to make a stock for our Won Ton soup. It makes for a very clear stock.

    FANTASTIC! I was just wondering where in the world you got them from! Thanks wiffy!

      I saw how you improvise with coffee filter bags and baker’s string… very creative! :)

    which Daiso did you buy this stock pack from? i couldn’t find it in the daiso in Sengkang

      The daiso outlets I frequent are Tamp 1, Ion & Plaza Sing. I do see it quite frequently. Maybe you can look out whenever you pass by an outlet.
