Some of the ingredients I already posted in Pears & Pork soup. The two ingredients here are also commonly used in soup:
Semen Euryales - Taste like cooked peanuts after it's cooked.
Chinese Yam - Also called Huai Shan
1 lb. Lean pork
1 Green Daikon, peeled and cut into big pieces
3 Carrots, peeled and cut into big pieces
2 Tbsp Semen Eurayles
6 Huai Shan
3 Dried Scallops
2 tbsp North Almonds
1 tsp South Almonds
- Bring a pot of water to boil.
- Rinse all ingredients and set aside.
- Add in pork and the rest of ingredients into the boiling water . Bring to another boil on high.
- Turn heat to simmer and continue to cook for two and half hours.
*North almonds are actually apricot kernels and are bitter in taste. Never use too much of them. All of these ingredients can be found in any Chinese store and supermarket.
