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.
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.
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.
