Big Bone Pear Soup

It’s the first time for me to try this dish. It’s a very simple Soup. But if you want the soup to be more delicious, it will take more time to cook it.

First, pour enough water in a deep pot. Put big bone or ribs into it. 

Turn to high heat. When water boils, remove the foam floating on surface. 

Turn to low heat. Cover the pot with lid. Boil for at least half an hour. In Chinese cuisine, good soup is usually a bit time consuming. I let the bone boil in pot for around one hour. And the soup become milky white in color.

Then add in pear chunks. And boil for at least another half an hour. Sprinkle some salt before serving.


It just needs bone or ribs, pear, water and salt. So it’s a simple soup. But it turns out very delicious. Pear adds sweetness to it. My husband loves it.

It’s an easy soup to cook. But it needs at least one hour. 

Put big bone in a deep pot with enough water. Turn to high heat.

When water boils, take the big bone out and rinse. Pour the water in the pot out.

Big bone in the pot again with enough water. Turn to medium heat. When water boils, turn to low heat. And slow cook for at least half an hour. I cooked it for 1 hour.

Add in white gourd pieces and some wolf berries. Simmer for at least another half an hour.

Sprinkle salt to season and some chopped spring onion. And ready to serve.
