This is a really simple recipe – all you need is time. To achieve the white, milky colour, you need to boil the pork ribs for 5 minutes, remove from heat, then rinse with tap water. This will remove the gunk and impurities that would adulterate your soup. The total cooking time over the stove top is 3-4 hours.
This is the perfect soup for the erratic weather recently. It is soooo hot even if it rains! The husband also remarked that we’ve been having a lot of heaty and heavy food since our Taiwan trip (fried chicken, Taiwanese braised pork rice and bak chang anyone?)… so slow cooked soups it is this week!
