I was told that this soup is good for one's general health.   In what way, I have no idea but I believe for those who love bittergourd,   they will enjoy this soup.  
Easy, simple and tasty pork ribs soup with a little bitter taste of the bittergourd and fragrance of the cooking wine that is added just before serving.

[serves 2]
1 bittergourd [about 200 gm] - halved and white pith removed, sliced
200 gm pork ribs - blanched and rinsed
5-6 red dates
1 honey dates [optional]
1 tbsp wolfberries [goji]
800 ml water
1 tbsp light soy sauce
dash of salt and msg to taste
1 tbsp cooking wine [add to hot soup before serving]

  1. Bring water to boil, add in pork ribs and red dates.  Boil for 20 minutes or until ribs are almost tender.
  2. Add in seasoning to taste, then the bittergourd and goji.
  3. Continue to boil for another 10 minutes until bittergourd is cooked [just crunchy or soft according to own preference].
  4. Add cooking wine to boiling soup just before serving.
  5. Serve hot.
