Sudden craving for soup makes me try cooking this soup. Happy with the taste and definitely a keeper.
The soup has its' natural sweetness, the pearly beans are just tender. The original recipe uses big chunks of sweet corn but I used fresh baby corns as I have them in my fridge.
300 gm pork ribs - cut into pieces
150 gm pearly beans
1 sweet corn [replaced with 6 baby corns] - cut into pieces
8 red dates
800 ml water
salt to taste
dash of pepper [optional]
- Scald pork ribs in boiling water for several minutes. Drain and rinse with water until clean.
- Bring water to boil in a soup pot [I used claypot], add in pork ribs to cook until tender [about 30-40 minutes].
- Add in the remaining ingredients, bring to boil then lower heat to simmer for 15 - 20 minutes or until the beans are soft.
- Add salt to taste. Serve hot.
