Some days I see what I have in the kitchen and use up for my cooking. Do not want to waste anything.
Like the other day, I were thinking of cooking soup as it was very chilling day that evening. So digging through my spices and ingredients rack, I thought of using red dates, gingko and black beans for my pork ribs soup.
I wonder anyone cooked this soup before because I could not find anything on this in the internet. Luckily it turned out alright. Not too bad but next time, I will try it with chicken instead. I seldom cook pork at home but as hubby was here over the weekend, I cooked this pork rib soup as he prefers pork than chicken.
Very simple recipe for my pork ribs soup with red dates, gingko and black beans. Soak all 3 ingredients for few minutes. For gingko, remove the inner bitter stuff in the nuts.
In slow cooker, cook all 3 ingredients so gingko and black beans will soften before add in the blanched pork rib. Dash some white pepper and add salt to taste after add the pork. Let it cooks for another 1 to 1.5 hours before turn off the heat.
