Pork ribs nappa cabbage soup ~ 白菜排骨汤


My son cooked this delicious soup for us during our recent holiday and I told myself that I must replicate this when I'm home.   I substituted the ingredients and made this refreshing soup with only three key ingredients, which are Shitake mushrooms, pork ribs, nappa cabbage and of course, water.








  • Pork ribs with nappa cabbage soup ~  白菜排骨汤
  • Ingredients
  •  
  • 500 gm spare ribs
  • 600 gm Nappa cabbage, sliced
  • 8 Shitake mushrooms, soaked till soft and stemmed
  • 2.1/2 lt water
  • Salt to taste
Method
  1. Wash and blanch the ribs in a pot of boiling water.  Drain, rinse, set aside.
  2. Boil the 2.1/2 lt water, once boiling, add the Shitake mushrooms followed by the blanched ribs.  Cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 1/2 an hour, add in the cabbage and cook for another 2 hrs on low heat.  Add salt to taste.
  3. Serve with rice or noodles.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
