Spare Ribs Soup ( With Red Dates & Ginkgo)

1. Rinse spare ribs in water.

2. Put ribs in a deep pot. Add in enough water higher than ribs.

3. Turn to high heat. When water boils, skim it. 

4. Turn to low heat. Add in 2 or 3 red dates. 

5. Cover the pot with lid. Let it slow cook for at least 40 mins. I let it boil for 1.5 hrs. The meat will become very soft and come off from the bone very easily.

6. Add in ginkgo. I read on internet that it could be poisonous if you have too many ginkgo one time. So I just put in 10 ginkgoes. And boil for another 15 Mins.


Serve hot.


You can also sprinkle a little spring onion.


Very nice soup!
