I cook: Arrowroot Pork Ribs Soup 粉葛排骨汤
Arrowroot (粉葛), some might misunderstanding it as “nga gu” which we commonly slice it to make chips when Chinese New Year.
Arrowroot (粉葛)， is a type of root vegetable which is free from gluten, low in calories and high in protein, fiber, folates and Vitamin B-complex.
A medium size arrowroot (500 – 800g)
300g pork ribs
Some peanuts (optional)
Handful of red dates, wolfberries (goji) & yuk zhuk
Salt to taste
Step 1: Clean the arrowroot and carrot, peel the skin and cut into chunks. (You may keep the skin of the arrowroot because some said the skin have more nutrition but I’m not sure how true is it)
Step 2: Clean the pork ribs then scald in boiling water to remove blood and impurities.
Step 3: In a soup pot, put everything in and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer the soup over low heat for 2 – 3 hours.
Step 4: Add salt to taste & serve.
