  • 500 g Pork Bones in Ribs
  • 400 g Lotus Roots
  • 100 g Raw peanuts
  • 20 g Large Pieces of Ginger
  • 10 pieces Red Dates Rinsed and soaked for 15 minutes
  • 2 tbsp Goji
  • 2.5 Liter Water
  • 1/4 tsp White Peppercorn
  • 2 1/2 tsp Salt


  • Put the pork ribs in hot water to blanch them. Upon reaching a pale color and the water begins to boil, remove them. Place the ribs in cold water to wash them quickly.
  • Place the blanched pork ribs into a pot. By adding sufficient cold water, about 1 cm above the ribs, immerse the ribs in water.
  • Boil the water and simmer the ribs for 30 minutes.
  • Occasionally skim off the scum on the surface with a wire mesh strainer.
  • Take root and peel it off. Cut it into half-centimeter-thick pieces.
  • To soften the peanuts, soak them in water overnight.
  • Make sure the wolfberries are rehydrated and plump by soaking them.
  • Combine the lotus root, peanuts, red dates, white peppercorn, and ginger.
  • Cook for 90 minutes at a low temperature.
  • Add the wolfberries and salt.
  • Cook for another 15 minutes.
  • It's time to taste the soup.
