Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup

Its been a while I've cook this typical Chinese old cucumber soup for my family! Weather been rather crazy nowadays, hopefully this old cucumber soup will help to relieve our body heatiness! 

  • 2 medium old cucumber
  • 500gm pork ribs
  • 1 piece dried cuttlefish
  • 8 dried scallops
  • 8 red dates
  • 2 honey dates
  • 1 heap tbsp wolfberries

  1. Wash and scrub the old cucumber thoroughly. Cut lengthwise into half and scrap away the seeds. Slice into 3 sections. Set aside.
  2. Rinse cuttlefish and dry fry in a pan over low heat till fragrant. Set aside.
  3. Rinse and pork ribs. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add in pork ribs and blanch for 1 min. Drain away water and rinse well.
  4. Place blanched pork ribs, cuttlefish, scallops, red dates and honey dates into a deep casserole. Fill in 3L water. Bring to boil. 
  5. Add in sliced old cucumber and cook over high heat for 5 mins.
  6. Cover with lid and turn down heat to low. Simmer for 2.5 hours. Add in wolfberries and salt to taste and simmer for another 5 mins. Turn off heat and ready to serve!
