Carrot & Daikon Pork Ribs Soup

Carrot & Daikon Pork Ribs Soup Recipe

This recipe covers two methods of cooking this soup: simmering over the stove-top and using a crock pot slow cooker.

Pork ribs can be substituted with chicken: use one kampong chicken or 6 drumsticks with 1 chicken bone.


  • 500 grams pork spare ribs
  • 1200ml water (for stove-top method) OR 900ml for slow-cooker method
  • 200g daikon (white radish) peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 150g carrots peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 4 red dates
  • 4 dried scallops
  • 1/2 small yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic cloves don’t peel or mash them
  • 3 slices ginger
  • 1 tsp mushroom seasoning powder optional
  • salt to taste


First, blanch pork ribs in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes. Rinse pork pieces with cold water and set aside.

Stove-Top Method

Add blanched pork and all the ingredients except salt into a large soup pot.
Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for another 40-50 minutes. Season to taste with salt. For best results, keep warm in a thermal pot for at least 2 hours before serving.

Slow-Cooker Method

Use 900ml hot boiling water instead of 1200ml as specified in the recipe.

In a crock-pot slow cooker, add blanched pork and all the ingredients except salt. Cook at “High” for 2 hours (starting from the time when the soup starts bubbling), then set to simmer at “Low” until ready to serve. Top up with a small amount of boiling water occasionally only if needed (if the soup in the pot is reduced). Season to taste with salt.

  1. The soup looks clear and delicious! Have to tell my mom to add some dried scallops next time :-)

  2. Comforting homey soup! This is how I would do my Chinese soup as well…just that I don’t keep stock on dried scallops but I know this “less-is-more” secret ingredient is super unami flavorful when used.

  3. Super delicious soup
    Made first time according to recipe
    My whole family loves the soup
    Will make again
    Thank you for sharing recipe

  4. Hello, would like to ask if i intend to cook this soup in thermal pot, will the red dates make the soup sour? As the cooking time will be around 6+am to 6+pm. 12 hrs long. Thanks!
