Pearly Beans with Pork Ribs Soup

Sudden craving for soup makes me try cooking this soup.  Happy with the taste and definitely a keeper.

Pearly Beans
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.  
[serves 3-4]
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]
  1. Scald pork ribs in boiling water for several minutes.  Drain and rinse with water until clean.
  2. Bring water to boil in a soup pot [I used claypot], add in pork ribs to cook until tender [about 30-40 minutes].
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, bring to boil then lower heat to simmer for 15 - 20 minutes or until the beans are soft.
  4. Add salt to taste.   Serve hot.

Kimmy, I have seen these beans before! But I didn't know how to cook or what kind of beans they are. So now that I know, I can try your tasty soup!

Hi Phong Hong, it's very easy to cook these beans. Softens quite fast, too.

Kim, I like the sweet color of the fresh pearly beans. Looks like those painted eggs. I haven't cook this bean before, wonder how the taste is ?

Hi Aunty Young, these beans are quite meaty to bite and tasted good.
