This dish was supposed to be Slow Cooker Soft Bone Ribs but silly me defrosted the wrong packet of meat! Luckily this recipe will also be good with the pork collar (五花肉) that can’t wait to be cooked, so here’s what we’re gonna have for today.
Shark’s fin melon is a popular ingredient (a type of squash) used in Chinese soups. It is so named because it breaks apart into slivers resembling shark’s fin as it cooks. Its name on Wikipedia is so scientific (“Cucurbita ficifolia”).. if you’re not from Asia, I wonder if you’ve heard of this melon?
