Pork, Kidney And Egg Soup

This Pork, Kidney And Egg Soup is my mom's recipe. Another famous soup for confinement is which my mom will definitely make this for at my confinement. I usually will only drink the soup but will not be eating the kidney neither the liver.
My husband is a huge fan of this soup and will always request for this soup, today he brought home some pork kidney from the market and requested me to boil this for him. This will be his one dish meal tonight. I don't know how to treasure this soup however i am very good in cleaning and getting rid of the kidney smell. First you need to remove all the white and red tubes from the kidney. Soak the kidney in salt water for 20 minutes or more. Wash and change water frequently until the water becomes clear.
